Tailgates & Tanlines

Genre: Country; Lead Performer: Luke Bryan; Status: In Season; Music Label: Capitol Nashville

Now that Blake Shelton’s playing to pop fans thanks to The Voice, there’s an opening in Nashville for the down-home horndog with a heart of gold. Bryan puts himself up for the gig on his feisty third album, asking one gal to shake it for the catfish swimming down deep in the creek, and bragging about his moonshine stash in a cypress stump. (Bottoms up, ladies!) Several snoozy ballads dampen his mojo near the end, but Tailgates & Tanlines mostly shines. B+
