||Texas Saturday Night CD (2008) |
Young Country songs Young Country is all about a state of mind, and that state is definitely Texas. Like Texas itself, Young Country can't be pigeon holed to one genre or style of music. Their musical influences are all across the board and their songwriting and song choices prove it. Country, rock, bluegrass, swing, blues, it's all there. Great vocals, melodies, rhythms and tight harmonies are all the driving force behind Young Country and a genuine family relationship with each other keep moving this group in the same direction.
This CD definitely runs the gamut of all of their influences and will please any music lover.
The songs are recorded just as they play them live with no additional studio musicians. The "Western Medley" and "Orange Blossom Special" are the only songs that are not original but have the band's own unique arrangements and are included on this CD for their fans due to their popularity in the live shows.
So get ready for a "Texas Saturday Night".
