Love And Blood is no departure from Shane's previous work, instead it hones in on his strengths of straight song structures, catchy melodies and well executed musicality with a workmanlike approach. It all seems to fit perfectly, almost too perfectly. Seamlessly even. The best country music shows cracks and the musical dirt beneath the fingernails.
Produced by Kevin Walsh, the Album of the Week feature is heard live on GMC every morning. You can hear the interviews in full here.
