In this episode, we're featuring a 2016 release from Texas sensation Curtis Grimes: "Undeniably Country" (2016). Known for his Texas Country/Red Dirt sound in previous years, Grimes set out with producer Trent Willmon to make an album that fans couldn't mistake for anything but straight country music. And the result is a resounding success - steel guitar from Nashville maestro Mike Johnson, songwriting from Grimes himself (who grew up on a steady diet on George Strait and Alan Jackson, as he says) in a radio-friendly package but still as country as cornbread. This album is refreshing, and others seem to think so as well. Highlights include the #1 Texas hit "Right About Now", the cheeky "Ten Year Town", "If You Ask Me" and a tip of the hat to Keith Whitley on "Everything Hank Did".
