A hero's soul was his, and higher
The minstrel's love, and poet's fire.
-- Allan Cunningham, 18th century Scottish poet

Poet Warrior. Nothing could better describe wm Alan Ross. His vocals have been described as "butter melting on a warm plate," and fans swear they never tire of hearing his music, over and over and over. The 40-year music veteran displays his clear guitar work on an ancient Guild, combining sensitive bass and percussion with sweet, sexy vocals. His music has being played in 41 countries and on more than 500 radio stations across the U.S.

The Poet Warrior collection is full of songs that all can relate to, like Ross's "Late Bloomer." Ever feel just plain underrated? Might others still think you're a tad unmotivated? Hello there, late bloomer.

This collector's CD also includes “Arizona Highways,” a southwestern lament about missing your woman. Bad. "She's on Arizona Highways, far from Tennessee, and I'm about to go half cactus crazy." If you've ever been lonely for somebody while driving through the desert, this song is for you. If you've ever been lonely for somebody while driving, this song is for you.

“Golden Acre, Goodnight” is the true story of Jim G. Brown and Golden Acre, a onetime magical private domain and the USA’s 1945 Victory Garden of the Year, a considerable honor in its time. Alan had the pleasure of living at the sacred spot for nine years -- on the same land where once upon a time vines of green beans spelled out "victory," and the tomatoes were as big as basketballs. This story/song never fails to elicit a light tear, a wistful smile. Mr. Brown was a simple man who lived close to the earth, giving away his goods with a generosity rarely equaled. Golden Acre, the property, still exists in Nashville, Tennessee. Today, it nestles in its tiny acre of woods, in turn dwarfed by high-rise buildings, concrete roads, and parking lots. No matter what your musical preference, this is a story worth hearing. And sharing. And passing along.

Ross's mischievous side bursts out in “Rappin' Eef,” the cross-cultural eef/rap/folk-art phenomenon that utilizes the quirky vocal medium Ross learned personally from the great Jimmy Riddle, former Hee-Haw star and master eefer. To learn more about eefin, visit Ross's website www.rossmusic.net and get an eefin lesson. You can also read a story on eefin at www.countryrag.org within the site. And listen to the clip here on CDBABY!

Ross is backed on Poet Warrior by Nashville session bassist Don Kerce, Nashville Symphony Orchestra cellist Lynn Peithman, and New Orleans percussionist Mark Morris.

The poet wars on.
This CD collection has all the hits ~ from Late Bloomer, the song that connects with young and old alike; to Rappin Eef, that crazy vocal medium from the Tennessee hills; to the true story of Golden Acre, the USA 1945 Victory of the Year. Ross' lyrics are mature and have substance, and his instrumentation is so sweet.
