Crossin Dixon, “Guitar Slinger”
Is it just me, or has there been a lot of this lately? Flynnville Train, Halfway to Hazard, Cole Deggs & The Lonesome, Whiskey Falls, and now, Crossin Dixon. Young guys, more southern rock than country, all with a similar look and groove. I’m not sure how any one of them is going to break out of the pack. Whiskey Falls put out an awesome single earlier this year and it got lost in the shuffle, and the other acts all seem to stall around the thirties on the singles chart.
It would be a shame for the same fate to fall on “Guitar Slinger”, which is powered by some impressive harmonies and a believable vocal. I enjoyed this quite a bit, actually. I look forward to hearing more from them.
