Hootie sounded plenty confident minus the Blowfish on Learn to Live, his 2008 debut as a country act, so Charleston, SC 1966 doesn’t reveal a singer more in touch with his twang. But it does show some nice songwriting growth: ”Might Get Lucky” nails married-with-children romance, while ”Southern State of Mind” redeems a truckload of down-home clichés. The moving ”Whiskey and You” even suggests he’s got Something to Say. B+
