One More Night in Nashville

by Kurt Fortmeyer

Listening to this CD is like taking a trip back in time and finding yourself in a darkly lit barroom standing at the jukebox. Or maybe on 16th Avenue South, where songwriters used to vie with each other to write not only hit songs, but also literate ones.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Fans of Guy Clark, Jerry Jeff Walker, Kris Kristofferson, and David Allan Coe should enjoy "One More Night In Nashville", the latest release from this North Carolina native currently residing in the hills northwest of Nashville.
From the twin fiddle kickoff of the opening track "(I Got My Heart) Broke In" to the last lonesome harmonica bend of the closer "I've Been There", Kurt takes the listener on a colorful and emotional meander through an eleven song set of what can be loosely categorized as (not today's) country music...four solo writes and seven co-writes with Nashville newcomers and old-timers, including hit writers Rich Fagan and Dave Gibson, and the Grammy-nominated Jeff Batson.
For fans of hardcore honkytonk music, Kurt sets up the bar with his tribute to the Georges "Dickel, Strait & Jones" and the sly "(A Man Can't Live On) Beer Alone". If busted relationships are your thing, the ragtime/New Orleans/blue yodel "Better Hearts Than Yours" takes a light-hearted poke at an ex. "A Thing Of The Past" will make you yearn for a love gone by, while the bluegrass song done Kentucky Headhunters-style "You Done Done It Now" offers up a darker solution. The Bob Seger-meets-Pete Seeger-on-Jimmy Buffett's-houseboat vibe of the economic protest "Not In My Backyard", the sad sentimental song about Grandpa "Inside That Box", the mad not-so-sentimental one about Dad "(All You Taught Me How To Do Was) Drink", and the struggling songwriter's lament of the title track round out the CD.
Recorded by Pat Lassiter at River Front Recording in Madison, Tennessee with some of the best players from some of the best road bands (Tracy Lawrence, Gary Allan, Montgomery Gentry, Michael Martin Murphey, Blake Shelton, The Trey Ward Band) in Nashville, "One More Night In Nashville" mentions nary a tailgate, a dirt road, a riverbank, a pair of cut-off Daisy Dukes, or any women called "girl". This is country music for grown-ups of all ages.

Real music
I've had the pleasure of seeing Kurt perform live in Nashville as a solo artist. Kurt's new release takes his music to another level. The album is a tour de force - delightful original songs that all tell a story, some which bring tears to your eyes. Poignant lyrics, a hard-hitting band, memorable melodies. Fans of real music need to check out this collection of tunes. Now if we could only talk him into touring the Midwest . . .

New favorite CD!
It's a real shame that "country" radio has forsaken music like this in favor of the hip-hop "bro country" that they are offering up theses days. This CD is chockfull of literate songs of substance, yet it still manages to be hooky and entertaining. The recording is superb, the players are great, and the songs are exceptional. Nashville (and the rest of the world) would do well to pay attention.

What country radio used to (and ought to) be...
When I first put on "One More Night In Nashville", I felt like I was listening to a radio show from 30 years ago...Ed Bruce, followed by George Strait, followed by David Allan Coe, followed by Jimmy Buffett, followed by Don Williams, followed by Hank Junior, followed by...I think you get my drift. (Except all of the songs are new, and all are performed by one artist.) This record will make you lonesome for the good old days of real country songs (and songwriters). Definitely multiple thumbs up!

If anyone wants a taste of what real country music feels and sounds like, Then look no further the Kurt Fortmeyer! Ive listened to the album several times now and cant find a bad track yet. Highly recommend to any true fan of music!

what they said
I have to echo the other 3 reviewers so far: It is my favorite new CD (doesn't leave my car deck, except to bring in and play) & it does have all the qualities that original country music sounded when I used to love it. Though, no reason to categorize as folk or country, it has a great lyrical sound that tells a story and that is the greatest quality in great music. Proud of our Garner High alum for producing a terrific album
