    Josh Rouse' best record, with 1972 close behind. First bought this in Montana while road tripping through the country. Perfect driving (or anything) music. All the songs are great. I also had the honor of seeing him on this tour in Nashville, solo acoustic. Fantastic.

  1. Nashville validates the promise Rouse has exhibited since Dressed Up Like Nebraska, encompassing a gift for emotional detail and a fondness for simple, unadorned lyrics. It's an understated, impeccably played collection of heartfelt tunes about a time and place that can never be returned to.
  2. Somebody will really have to pull off a miracle to top Nashville as far as intelligent, honest and entertaining guitar pop goes in 2005. Or any other year.
  3. Persistently gorgeous. [25 Feb 2005, p.102]
