Singer/Songwriter Chuck Cusimano has just released this new 12 cut CD, all from his pen. The material again is a mixture of Western Swing, Texas dance hall sounds and traditional country music. In addition to writing all the tunes, Chuck produced the album and is heard on lead and background vocals and lead and rhythm guitar. Gary Carpenter is the steel guitarist and Hank Singer plays fiddle. Mark Abbott plays bass, Dixie Hankins and Josh Rogers do drums. Eddie Morgan plays electric piano and Terry Bayless, Baby Grand piano.
The album opens in the Texas dance hall style with She's Someone. Other tunes in this style are Broken Hearts, I Had Her Leavin Comin, Love That You Turned Down, You Can't Bring Back Yesterday and I Only Forget You. Traditional country music is represented with Ten Thousand to One, There's One in Every Bar and What Can You Do. The wonderful sound of Western Swing is heard on How Many, Hangin' Out in a Honkytonk and Home For the Heartache.
