Ray Lamontagne - "God Willin and the Creek Don't Rise" (8.0 out of 10)
As my sons can tell you, this type of music is not my bag....white man, blue-eyes soul sung earnestly and strummed sensitively. Rarely does music like this make me do anything but roll my eyes at this faux-genre. But Ray Lamontagne....admittedly helped by great production and his stellar band....pulls it off. Early Neil Young and James Taylor come to mind for me. I won't buy it, but there's a good chance you will love it.
