Album Review

Lucky Ones is Pat Green's third album for a major label, but it's the first one where he truly seems comfortable gunning for the big time. He enlists producer Don Gehman, who produced a few songs on his previous album, 2003's Wave on Wave, for the entire record, and Gehman not only gives Lucky Ones a bright roots rock feel similar to the albums he produced for John Mellencamp, he also enlists drummer Kenny Aronoff and violinist Lisa Germano, both Mellencamp vets, for a few tracks. These two, along with a few other session musicians, mix seamlessly with Green's seven-piece backing band, giving the album a consistent sound — and that sound is big and shiny, part contemporary country, part heartland rock, all polished and designed for a wide audience.

He started writing songs at age 18 while studying at Texas Tech, and was eager and earnest to make something more happen with music. After convincing his parents to loan him some money, Green recorded the album Dancehall Dreamer and independently...
