Album Review

George Canyon is quite the happy man. He's content with who he is, with his family and his music. All that is easy to tell from listening to his third album, Somebody Wrote Love. Canyon, who borders on neo-traditionalist country and contemporary country, has a great voice and he's got heart. The album features songs emotionally touching enough to bring the listener to tears of joy — "Madi's Song (The Man She Thinks I Am)" is about Canyon's daughter; as he writes in the liner notes, "she has me tied around her finger so tightly I can barely breathe but I love it" — or tears of sorrow and grief with the true story of a woman struggling to get beyond the loss of her husband to an untimely accident in "I Want You to Live." Canyon's rich tenor vocals and his friendly, down-to-earth persona come through nicely on the album, making his music accessible and pushing him closer and closer to being a major star in the Nashville scene. Though many of the songs are sentimental and even somber, "Drinkin' Thinkin'" is a humorous neo-traditionalist honky tonk number about the effects of alcohol ("that's just drinkin' thinkin'/liquor logic in a can/your brain cells parted and your body/ believes you're superman") and has star quality. Somebody Wrote Love is intimate, heartwarming, and fun, and Canyon gives off the sense that he wants his listeners to know him, a sentiment not often felt through a lot of often over-processed contemporary country. He might not have attained a sound that sets him apart from his peers yet, but his songwriting, vocals and personality — traits that will hopefully all get better in time — seem to make him stand out .

Classic Modern Country

If you're looking for pop-oriented "contemporary" country, this album isn't for you, but this isn't your grandpa's country music either. With this album, George Canyon finds a balance between the classic sound and the modern style to produce an album that has something for everybody.

Canyon's powerful voice lends itself well to the sadder, slower songs, and as a result, there are plenty of them on this album. "I Want You To Live", a song about a soldier's wife, and "The Hard Times" are two of many very emotional, personal pieces on the album. Between these songs, Canyon sticks some cheery love songs like "Time For Goodbye" and the title track. Canyon sings the honky-tonk style just as well as he sings the more sentimental songs, and if you're in the truck with this CD, you'll find it hard to resist the urge to roll the windows down, crank up "Drinkin' Thinkin'", and sing along for all the world to hear. One of the other highlights of the album is "Some People Change" (later recorded by Montgomery Gentry). I personally prefer Canyon's version of "Some People Change" to MG's, as like many of the other songs on the album, it feels very personal.

All around, this is a very solid album. The reason I gave it 4/5 instead of 5/5 was because of the slower songs - I would have liked to see more upbeat songs to better balance out the slower ones. If you don't buy the whole album, "Some People Change", "Somebody Wrote Love", "I Want You To Live" and "Drinkin' Thinkin'" are must-haves.

Oh Please

Way to contemporary country sounding; unoriginal and dumb. Only Drinkin Thinkin' is good. I thought this guy was a good unique singer until this album. Save your money!

In 2004, at the urging of his wife, he auditioned for the second season of the U.S.A. Network's talent competition Nashville Star, where he eventually landed runner-up. With his newly acquired...
