Grant Langston "Working Until I Die"

(grantlangston.com)  Grant fancies himself a West Coast/Bakersfield-style C&W traditionalist, but this record has more to do with the last the late 80s when Randy, Garth, Travis and others were following George Strait's lead and being more timeless than old timey. This is a fun, but serious,  collection of clever honky tonkers that manages to do the classic country trick of using wordplay and tropes that should seem silly but making then address genuine hardship with sincerity.
