Album Review

On his second nationally distributed album, genuine cattle-punching cowboy Todd Fritsch has upped the level of polish just a bit, and 2007's Sawdust sounds decidedly more radio-ready than his self-titled 2005 release, which earned him some chart action for the song "Small Town Radio." But Fritsch's regular-guy personality shines through the slick spots on Sawdust, and along with his strong, easygoing vocal style, it's his greatest asset. Fritsch sounds right at home singing about pretty girls, broken hearts, honky tonkin', and what he does and doesn't like in country music, and he's clearly having a ball with the Bob Wills-style swing of "Five Mornings Down," the twangy two-step of "All That's Left Is You," and the proud celebration of his roots in "Texas Talking."

Fritsch was born in 1981 in Willow Springs, a rural community west of Houston; at the age of 14 he became interested in music, and started singing in local talent competitions with...
