The New World

the-new-world.jpg

Best known as a go-to tunesmith for the likes of George Strait and Tim McGraw, Austin-based Bruce Robison’s own albums tend toward a distinctively compelling mixture of laid-back charm and barely suppressed melancholy. The New World is on the laid-back end of that spectrum, marked by harmonica outbursts from veteran Willie Nelson sidekick Mickey Raphael and some relatively brisk tempos. Big-time country stars are liable to soon cherry-pick New World for hits-in-waiting like “She Don’t Care,” but don’t let that prevent you from giving the author a hearing right now.
