    Alan’s album is the real thing, a “must” whether you’re a bluegrass buff or just a fan of fine music.

    While this is still a typical Alan Jackson album in many ways, it’s a fine bluegrass album, and a good primer for those who aren’t all that familiar with what bluegrass is supposed to be.

    Jackson and album producers Keith Stegall and Adam Wright infuse a back-porch feel in original numbers here and savvy selections from other writers, including Jackson's new spin on John Anderson's 1982 hit "Wild and Blue" and Adam Wright's sharply witty "Ain't Got Trouble Now."

    In the end, Jackson's foray into bluegrass seems easy and natural, as if he'd been playing it all along.

    It’s not a hybrid take on bluegrass but a purposely traditional one, while still carrying his musical personality... which means it’s a hybrid of sorts after all, but an unshowy, natural-feeling one.
