Alive and Well and Livin’ the Dream

Eight years after his last studio album, Ty sounds like he’s rarin’ to go on Alive and Well, turning in one committed, passionate vocal performance after another. Too bad the songs here are mostly undeserving of his enthusiasm. “Redneck Anthem” lives up to its tellingly generic title, trotting out every cliché not already beaten to death by the approximately 5,793 other redneck anthems of the last few years, while “The NRA Song” is a gratingly awkward recruitment jingle. It’s nice to have Ty back, but it would be even nicer if he had found stronger material.
