His Greatest

Bruce-Robison-cd.jpg

The title of His Greatest is at least partly tongue-in-cheek, as Bruce Robison’s commercial success still lags far behind his critical acclaim. But that title is also true: Several of the songs revived here from the Texas singer/songwriter’s back catalog were big hits for artists like George Strait (“Wrapped,” “Desperately”), Tim McGraw and Faith Hill (“Angry All the Time”) and the Dixie Chicks (“Travelin’ Soldier”). Bruce’s new versions are compelling in their own right, especially when his warm, friendly voice essays a vividly rendered lyric like the novelistic “My Brother and Me.” (The album is available digitally now and will be released on CD Jan. 20.)
