We gave it a B+

On The Restless Kind, his most countrified effort yet, the rebel Georgian pairs with producer Don Was for a stripped-down record that shelves the distorted Southern rock guitars for fiddles, Dobro, and spirited vocals. A Steve Earle-ish guitar sound on ”Draggin’ My Heart Around” and an ultra-cool rockabilly shuffle (”She’s Going Home With Me”) make for edgy surprises, but Travis Tritt is most effective on ”Where Corn Don’t Grow,” a plain ol’ ”you can’t go home again” weeper. B+
