Guide Review - Forty 5 South - We're Country So We Can

Forty5 South's debut album is the perfect blend of country music with just the tiniest bit of rock, thanks to producer Bret Michaels. Bret also lends his vocals to the 'We're Country So We Can' title track. The main focus, however, should be on the group's wonderful musicianship & the lead singer's superb voice.

"We're Country So We Can" features Bret Michaels & reminds me of the type of song Tim McGraw would sing. It's about standing your ground & never backing down because the country way of life is something to be cherished. "Little Red Riding Hood" is one of those songs you automatically start liking from the first note. The guy wants to get back to Grandma's house because "There's not a lot I wouldn't do just to get my hands on you." I would love to hear this on the radio. Memories have a way of haunting you long after you think they've left your mind, as is the case in "Seems Like Yesterday." Sometimes just driving down a street will get your mind wandering.

Going out Friday night after a hard work week is a must according to "Smoke 'Em If You Got 'Em" because what better time is there to do some partying? Remembering & forgetting are both covered in "I'm Gonna Move On." The man has come to a conclusion - if things don't get any better he is gone & will start dating other women. "Nothing You Can Do" is one of the album's tearjerkers & it tells the story of a man who goes through hard times but winds up learning his lesson after saying bye to his father.
