Leland Martin

If you consider yourself a fan of traditional country, you may as well go buy Leland Martin's self-titled fourth effort right now. You won't be disappointed—Missouri native Leland is, as the opening track announces, "Country as the Day Is Long." He's too old (nearly 50) and too darn country to get played much on the radio, but that's no reason not to seek out his elegantly earthy voice, crisp sound, sharp songwriting and clever choice of covers—even the Bee Gees' "Don't Forget to Remember" turns into pure country when Leland sings it.
