Tougher Than Nails

On his first album in nearly three years, Joe sounds relaxed, ready and relevant on this set of well-chosen, impeccably sung tunes.

He embraces everything from drinking songs ("The More You Drink, the Better I Look") to near-gospel (the title cut, one of the best in the current wave of religious hits), and stands toe to toe with George Jones ("What Would Waylon Do"). Not all the tunes are stellar, but when Joe gets hold of a powerhouse like the devastating ballad "Good News, Bad News," nothing can get in his way
