My Turn

As the title suggests, Doug took an unprecedented degree of control over the recording of his ninth album—and My Turn sounds like the work of a man who knows what he does well and is happy to still be doing it. Doug’s voice has mellowed and deepened in an ear-pleasing manner, and his way with a honky-tonk ballad is just as sure as it was during his hitmaking days in the early 1990s. He sounds uncomfortable on a couple of up-tempo numbers, but on the whole My Turn is a welcome return to Stone country.
