Album Review

It's clear listening to the title cut of Pretty Green Hills that Dave Evans puts lots of country-soul into his vocals. He'll never be confused with the ever growing cadre of male vocalists whose voices sound closer to Garth Brooks than Bill Monroe, and for that, traditionalists will be happy. He's joined by a handful of players and singers — Bobby Hicks, Randy Thomas, Merline Johnson, Mike Garris, and Bo Issac — for a solid set list mixing old favorites with several originals.
