Fireball

Arkansas native Shawn sneaked into the Top 40 a couple of times in the early 1990s before turning to songwriting as his primary trade—he's the man behind hits like Garth Brooks' "Two Piña Coladas" and Brooks & Dunn's "How Long Gone." He had a hand in four songs on Josh Turner's new album, Your Man, and if you enjoy that album's economy and sense of history, you'll probably dig this. (Your Man's "Would You Go With Me" is reprised on Fireball.) Only his third studio album in 13 years, Fireball suggests Shawn ought to consider stepping behind a microphone more often.
