More Info:Jason Eady's inspired new album Daylight and Dark embraces multiple styles of die-hard country music to weave together 11 songs about the deep, messy details of love and life.
Eady's sixth release is the follow-up to 2012 s AM Country Heaven, an artistic and commercial breakthrough that cracked the Top 40 on Billboard s Country Albums chart, boasting an old-school honky-tonk sound and a complete lack of artifice.
Daylight and Dark s high-powered barroom ballads OK Whiskey and We Might Just Miss Each Other offer a direct connection to the honky-tonk spirit of AM Country Heaven. But tunes like Other Side of Abilene have gentler, textured arrangements, crafted by carefully layered fiddle and electric, acoustic and pedal steel guitars that are more reflective of the album s overall sound. Also, Late Night Diner and the title cut echo the narrative style of great singers like Vern Gosdin and Don Williams, whose recordings, like Eady s, blend a novelist s eye for detail with the welcoming voice of a natural storyteller.
