A Thousand Memories

EW's GRADE
C+

Details Lead Performance: Rhett Akins; Genre: Country

In the rush to sign every hunky guitar slinger under 25, Nashville has done us a disservice by offering not-quite-ready-for-prime-time singer-songwriters. The latest example: Rhett Akins, who has a pretty face and an average voice, but whose life experience rarely goes beyond falling in love in the back of a Ford, as evident on A Thousand Memories. C+
