Review : Jason Eady - AM Country Heaven
Rough StockAs I began writing my review of Jason Eady's AM Country Heaven, I was struck immediately with how much growth Jason Eady has grown on his new album. It's a growth that finds the Texas-based, Mississippi-native ready to break-out unlike ever before. Working with renowned singer/songwriter Kevin Welch as his producer and members of Heybale, the Austin-based band of expert country music players (pianist Earl Poole Ball, guitarist Redd Volkaert, bassist Kevin Smith, drummer Tom Lewis) and they're joined by award-winning steel guitarist Lloyd Maines and fiddle player Cody Braun from Reckless Kelly.

He segues straight into the Haggard sound of “Old Guitar And Me,” which has that 70s MCA sound that Merle perfected during that time.
Other standout cuts on this album include “Man On A Mountain,” which features a guest appearance from the timeless Patty Loveless, and the swing-ish “Paid My Dues,” as well as “Water Into Wine,” which is a sterling piece of songwriting. Eady also is surrounded by a strong cast on the album. The legendary Lloyd Maines contributes some lonesome sounds on steel, and Cody Braun shows his prowess with the fiddle licks, as well....full text
