If you listened only to the initial hits from Aldean’s albums (”Hicktown” from his platinum debut and now ”Johnny Cash”), you’d think he had personality. Unfortunately, the personality mostly belongs to John Rich, who co-wrote both songs. Once the introductory rambunctiousness is past, there isn’t much gusto on Relentless — just indifferently interpreted B-list material from Music Row’s top tunesmiths. It does take nerve, though, to deliver a ballad with a chorus — ”Every man dies, not every man lives” — so shamelessly ripped off from Braveheart. DOWNLOAD THIS: Grown Woman
