Review: Bradley Walker – Call Me Old Fashioned

bradleywalkerThe foundation of true country music was built upon songs and artists that had something to say. Sometimes those songs were filled with tales of brokenness, heartbreak, and failure; at others, they resonated with notes that spoke of faith, family, and honest living. Yet in parts of today’s country world, it seems as though some of those values and honest reflections have been left behind, forgotten in favor of party songs that go well with flashy lights and big trucks.

I didn’t go to church on Sunday but, quite frankly, I wasn’t feeling too guilty about it. For, the night before, I’d spent a most powerful four hours at church worshipping amongst a crowd of thousands, led by one of Christian music’s most notable heavyweights, none other than Bill Gaither at the sold out Gaither Vocal Band Homecoming Tour in Tampa, FL. Featuring the Vocal Band, The Isaacs, The Nelons, Gene McDonald, Charlotte Ritchie, and a guest appearance from Gordon Mote, it was a night that those in attendance are bound to remember for a long, long time.
