Michael Dean Damron, Father's Day
With songs that tip their hats at his heroes (Steve Earle, Alejandro Escovedo, Townes Van Zant and Waylon Jennings, for example), "Father's Day" is an avalanche of brash truths and dark stories set to his own Americana landscape. The truth can be a downright ugly and thankless business, but one that Michael Dean Damron takes great pride in conducting. In a market over-saturated with singer/songwriters pressing to pimp their wares with watered-down musings, where mediocrity is often congratulated with heavily moved units and radio play, and whose climate doesn't take too kindly to those who stand up barrel-chested in defiance to such, Damron has his work cut out for him with his latest, "Fathers Day".
