Stoney LaRue's Aviator is full of twangy country rock that sounds like it come straight from the heart of Texas. He's actually from Oklahoma, but you get the idea. The music is surprisingly lush for a country rock album, but it never loses that foot tapping head bobbing vibe. The press materials compare him to Chris Knight which I think is an apt comparison. Stoney LaRue is one of the last true independent rock & rollers and you can hear it in the sound. He's not afraid to get heartfelt when he wants to. He's not afraid to throw in a 6 minute jam when he wants to. It's all him through and through and at the end you feel like you've heard great music but also maybe made a friend.
I'm adding "One And Only, "Golden Shackles," "It's Too Soon," and "Studio A Trouble Time Jam - Bonus Track" to roation.
