The best album of Shane's so far...and they're all great!
I've been enjoying Shane Adkins' new album, "The Bridge", for the last couple of days. I called him this morning to tell him I was going to wait a little while to write something here, but the fact is I'm ready to share my thoughts with you now.

I've seen Shane perform only three times...twice in music stores doing guitar workshops for the Huss & Dalton Guitar Company in Staunton and Charlottesville, Virginia, and then once in my living room when I was living in Charlottesville, the last house concert of my house concert series, in June, 2009. As good as his albums are (he has five, and you should be enjoying them all), Shane is best when heard in person. He is charming, entertaining, and extremely good at what he does...carrying on the finger-style tradition of acoustic guitar music.
This album, his fifth independently produced effort, starts with his own "The Bridge", which traces the history, musically, of a landmark in Tennessee. Five other original songs grace this collection, and although all of them are quite good, the closing track, "The Streets of Huntsville" brought tears to my eyes. I could relate to Shane's recounting of growing up in a metropolitan area that has evolved over the years as much as my own experience of seeing my home turf of Washington, DC and its suburbs go through similar changes. Shane's instrumental abilities are beautifully showcased in his covers of "I'll See You In My Dreams", "Alabama Jubilee", and the paired "Turkey In The Straw" and "Billy In The Low Ground".
One of these days, when I take the plunge and download Shane's five albums (and more to come, I hope) to an iPod and hit "shuffle", I know I'll be treated to an assortment of Shane Adkins that I'd likely hear live. I hope that Shane's next recording WILL be a live album, recorded at a venue of his choosing. That will have to suffice until I get to see him perform in person again. For now, I'm really pleased to have this disc in my collection, and I can assure you that if you get it, you will enjoy it as much.
