This is mid-seventies country-rock done really, really well. If I didn’t already own the Almost Famous soundtrack, I’d swear this was on it. They’re letting their roots show, and it’s a flattering sound for them. Fact is, acts like The Eagles, Linda Ronstadt and Fleetwood Mac influenced the hell out of modern country music, and there hasn’t been a new champion of this sound for a good long while.
I’ve criticized this band in the past for not showcasing their harmonies enough, and this time, they sing the entire song together. It sounds pretty damn sweet.
