From the End of Your Leash

Producer (group): Bloodshot

By pedigree, Bare Jr. gets tagged as alt-country, but the label seldom fits. His nifty little signature sound is actually an arch folk-pop based in acoustic guitars and brushes on snares, sometimes driven into rock by, of all things, a sax section. But the No Depression set will adore ”Visit Me in Music City,” a lovingly sarcastic ode to a Nashville where the ”greatest living guitar pickers can deliver you a pizza.”
