The Right Place
This singer/songwriter is unabashedly Texan, from his traditional, laid-back country voice to the cover of his album (the title is set within an outline of the Lone Star state, in leather). Zane, who wrote Jason Michael Carroll’s “Hurry Home,” wrote nearly every track on his CD by himself, then brought in fellow Texan Radney Foster to produce. “99 Bottles” finds Zane rattling off all his favorite beers, while the plucky “Live to Love Again” should be a great pick-me-up for any woman who’s been dumped. “Tired of Being Perfect” is a plea for more spontaneity within a relationship. If you’re in the mood for true honky-tonk music, you’re in the right place.
