Burnin' Up the Road

Genre: Country; Lead Performer: McBride and the Ride; Producer (group): MCA

McBride and the Ride take their inspiration from the kind of California country rock practiced by Southern Pacific. Lead singer-songwriter Terry McBride did a stint with Delbert McClinton, guitarist Ray Herndon formerly played with Lyle Lovett, and drummer Billy Thomas once backed Emmylou Harris. But with its songs of hot cars and fast women, this offering is as shallow and cliche-ridden as it is tuneful.
