The Highballers -- Soft Music and Hard Liquor

If ever there was an album worthy of being described as a romp, it's Soft Music and Hard Liquor.

The Highballers embrace old-school country in their debut album. Lead singer Kendall Jackson's bourbon-smooth vocals and witty lyrics place The Highballers in good company with many of country's greats.

Ranging from humorous ("I Didn't Mean to Get Drunk Last Night") to wistful ("Live to Let You Down"), the Highballers are gifted storytellers.

There should be more words to do this album justice, but I've been awake since 2:30 AM. Let's just say that if Soft Music and Hard Liquor is indicative of the music coming down the pipeline this year, we've got a lot to look forward to in 2013. And I'm certainly hoping it'll be a big year for The Highballers. Don't sleep on this album.
