Album Review

Tracy Byrd seems to have a knack for recording well-penned songs that pack an emotional punch using just the right words. Ten Rounds is no exception, but don't expect Byrd to drag you down with the "tear jerkers"; there's plenty of fun on this one too. Straying away from the pop sound that was infiltrating the music coming out of Nashville at the time of this album's release, Byrd's Ten Rounds is a traditional country album, but it isn't filled with the preachiness of the staunch traditionalists. Even "A Good Way to Get on My Bad Side," Byrd's duet with fellow Beaumont, TX, native Mark Chesnutt, doesn't cut completely to the quick when the two lambaste "boy band crap."

As always, Byrd lets the music speak his heart in Ten Rounds, and that's probably at least part of what makes him one of country music's most stable artists.

When Byrd was 20 years old, he visited a novelty recording studio in a shopping mall and sang over a karaoke-style backing track of "Your Cheatin' Heart." Impressed, the saleswoman...
