THAT'S THE SH!T THURSDAY- MIKE RYAN - BAD REPUTATION

Every now and then something gets sent my way that not only surprises me by how good it is but also surprises me by how fast I can tell I like it. Today was one of those days.

The new album from Mike Ryan hit my inbox today and I have given it a listen a couple times through. I won't go into a ton of "this is the best part" or "this song was yada yada" type stuff. I don't need to. Anything I say to build up this album is unnecessary. Simply put, it is one solid effort from beginning to end.

One thing kept hitting me and that was how much it reminded me of my favorite 80's- 90's country tunes. A point reiterated in the press release that accompanied the album almost word for word. Well written and polished to a near perfect sheen, Ryan's Bad Reputation album should easily garner tons of well deserved attention as there isn't one song here that isn't a radio ready hit. Look for it when it hits stores and online sales outlets Aug 19th.

The first link here is the current single "Dancing All Around It"




This video here is an acoustic version of my favorite track "Easy"
