mrsoulmarkj Heard this on WNCW today and listened on repeat all day. Had to buy the vinyl and show my support. This is gonna be my summer 2020 album and I’m perfectly fine with that. Great work and look forward to the streams later this month. Find the podcast from Southern Songs & Stories about the band and album. Favorite track: Me + Mine (Lamentations).

Bucky AA have always been great at catering to both the outlaw and pop side of the alt country spectrum. Lamentations takes it to the next level in terms of songwriting, heartfelt relevance, and anthemic hook. The production is magnificent and BJs vocals have never sounded so crisp and gritty.

James Kilpatrick American Aquarium’s BJ Barham is the definition of perseverance. He has had so much happen in his career and manages to keep making amazing records every time out. I feel this overall is their best yet. His lyrics are always so damn real and heartfelt it’s impossible not to be emotionally drawn to them. He has never shied away from singing about what’s real in the world right now. He is straight forward and honest which makes him so endearing to his fans. I love all the songs on this one. Favorite track: The Long Haul.
