Album Review

Continuing with the success of his honky tonk-fueled second album, Nashville recording artist Deryl Dodd plays up his Texas roots on Pearl Snaps. The opening title track is a barroom romp about how his girl loves the pearl snaps on his country-western-style shirts, and the follow-up, "She'll Have You Back," is complete with Bob Wills-style "aww-hawws." Well-placed covers by Tom T.

Still, Dodd's winning personality and his likable voice make for an enjoyable listen, and those who have picked up his previous releases will be more than pleased with Pearl Snaps.
