Justin Rutledge and the Junction Forty
No Never Alone
Batten down the hatches, pour yourself a drink and turn your stereos up because this feller could be the reincarnation of Gram Parsons. Not since Ron Sexsmith’s debut has anyone offered up such heartfelt lyrics, so prominently placed on sleeve. It’s fully entrenched in the traditions that make great country—heartbreak lyrics accompanied by a rucksack of acoustic musicians, including stellar pedal steel care of Burke Carroll. One of the top albums of 2005.
