Wow this is one of the finest new sounds I’ve heard in quite a while” and PARCBENCH stating Adkins “voice finds just the right nuance for each song, treating each as a unique musical portrait. His trustworthy vocals frame each with warmth and authenticity.”

The song itself is just about the best introduction to the rest of the album you could find. Bluegrass to the Bone! Followed by Dave’s rendition of John Conlee’s Top-Ten country hit from 1978 which may be even better than the original, right on down to the last song on the album, The Storm, Dave Adkins’ name needs to be placed right up next to all of the great vocalists in the hall of honor,”  said Brian McNeal, Prescription Bluegrass Media.
