While trios such as Lady Antebellum or newcomers The Band Perry lean toward soul-pop or acoustic sounds, this all-male trio’s tunes harken back to harmony-based groups of the ’90s such as Diamond Rio and Restless Heart. Don Gatlin handles the primary singing and songwriting duties, helping craft mini stories of the ins and outs of love. The tightknit harmonies on “Something’s Wrong in Vegas” evoke the Eagles, while the crunchy, funky ’80s groove of “Everything That Love’s Supposed to Do” is instantly ear-catching. The ballad “The Apple” (featuring an additional harmony by Vince Gill), with its lush blend of steel guitar and piano, tells the story of a man who commits to becoming a better man than his abusive father. The trio ends with a predictable but inspirational closer, “I Feel Your Pain” (co-written by artist Lee Brice). Fans who miss harmony-heavy country groups will like this trio.
