TIM HUS- WESTERN STAR-CD REVIEW- “BONAFIDE COUNTRY MUSIC STORIES AND PICKIN” -BY JOHN EMMS

tim hus 1

If Hank Snow was alive and in his prime Tim Hus and Hank would qualify as one heck of a tour. Pack it all in the back of a Western Star and Move On.

Yep, folks this is one heck of a batch of great songs written by Hus.

Produced by Harry Stinson and using amazing players like guitarist Kenny Vaughan and Hus’s own fiddler Billy MacInnis with Stinson’s drums in the pocket with upright bassist Riley Tubbs make you just want to turn this up driving and pass everything in sight.

Honestly, it’s hard to believe but Hus can sing about any subject and it make it bonafide

Check out the lyric for the title track.

I’m a two-way teamster transport truckin’
Diesel demon double-clutchin’
Makin’ my way along every highway whenever you are
I’m a white line wrangler wheeling my wide load in my Western Star

Elsewhere Halifax Blues and The Church of Country Music celebrate Alexander Keith, South Shore girls, and George Jones at the country music altar with condolences to Merle Haggard and Hank Williams.

Heck, I’m telling you Hus has written some gems on this album .

The tone and the lyrical vibe of Madawaska River is a musical nod to the great Stompin’ Tom Connors and would have gone down well at the Maple Leaf Hotel in Timmins Ontario, where I once brought Jeff Healey because he wanted play in the same room as Stompin’ Tom.

And yes, for you Alberta folks that’s a true story.

In one word folks Tim Hus’s Western Star is BONAFIDE
