Guide Review - Hot Apple Pie Hot Apple Pie
The first single released to radio is the fun Hillbillies. Its the kind of irreverent, summertime song that doesnt change the world but makes you feel good. Were Making Up is uptempo, harmony driven track while California King chronicles what its like to be the flavor of the month in the entertainment world only to see it all fade quickly. The Good Life is another summertime song while Why Cant I Get To You is a soft and tender ballad that could be a nice hit for Hot Apple Pie. Robbie Robertsons The Shape Im In is a well-done remake with fine pickin while Slowin Down The Fall features Willie Nelson and its the most traditional country sounding track on the 13 song disc.
With four equally talented musicians (and not Brady Seals w/a backing band) Hot Apple Pie has joined the ranks of the better bands to have come out of Nashville the last couple of years. There are quite a few songs on this record that could be hits for Hot Apple Pie.
