iTunes Review

Over the past decade, Pat Green has transitioned from Texas troubadour into Nashville hitmaker with considerable skill. 2003’s “Wave On Wave” proved that this resourceful singer/songwriter could score big singles without discarding his integrity. What I’m For pushes Green further into mainstream country territory with mixed results. This time, he pairs up with producer Dann Huff (Faith Hill, Keith Urban) for a set of anthemic heartland rockers and thoughtful mid-tempo tracks. Green’s versatile vocals — reminiscent at times of John Mellencamp, Bob Seger and ‘80s-era Steve Earle — sound folksy and unaffected one minute, aggressive and heroic the next. He binds the strands of his music together by celebrating old-fashioned values from a populist angle, whether in a rock context (“Footsteps of Our Fathers,” “Lucky”) or with country/pop overtones (“What I’m For,” “In This World”). What I’m For’s reassuring sentiments and bright production should earn it airplay, though the album’s slickness on clever but less-then-convincing tunes like “Country Star” and “Carry On” sometimes blunts its artistic impact.

why pat?

Pat used to be awesome! His first cd's were great and true to Texas Country. Now he is wearing tight jeans, flashy shirts, and sun glasses on his album covers... way to go. All pat has done is moved further and further away from his roots. We need some more George's Bar!

Damn shame

From beer drinking country music to fuzzy navel sipping pop b.s. Us Texans have had to watch one of our better country musicians transform himself from a hall of fame football player to a ballerina ferry dancer. This trash (which isn’t even country music) should’ve been put into the Brokeback Mountain sountrack. Hope you’re having fun tiptoe-ing through the tulips patty. You knew Nashville was gonna turn you into this. Now you can go enjoy the rest of your days drinking wine coolers in a California garden. Those flowered shirts are the perfect camouflage for that type of environment. RIP buddy…your Outlaw days are over.

pop star pat green?

being from texas, pat has been my favorite artist for 10+ years, and i will always remember his music as an integral part of the best parts of my growing-up years. however, i can't help but agree with many that this album is a complete sellout to the poppy, devoid of all soul, rascal flatts / keith urban genre of country pat used to be against. the reason pat was great is that he was different from those guys, but then he comes out with this cd where he's synthesized his own voice in as the harmony like britney spears. the song 'country star' pretty much details the sellout, and the fact that he changes the lyrics in 'carry on' from 'come back to texas and stay with me a while' to 'come back to my place and stay with me a while' makes me ill and a bit angry that a guy who comes out with a book about the great texas dancehalls would do that. it is beyond unfortunate, but this is the ending of an era in texas music, and the flame has truly passed to the randy rogers and stoney larues out there as folks who can truly say they stayed true to themselves a la willie, waylon, and crew. say it ain't so pat.
