Honesty

You've probably heard the Top 5 hit that kicks off this Tennessean's debut CD, "Honesty (Write Me a List)." You know, the one where the couple on the verge of divorce figure out they're not so far apart after all.

Well, Rodney delivers that sleepy little tear-jerker (and Honesty's other ballads) just fine, but what sets this newcomer apart from the pack is the way he ringleads the more energetic numbers here. Just try not to have fun when juiced-up body-movers like "Monkey in the Middle" and the racy "Sing Along" kick in.
