We gave it a B+

This staunch traditionalist grew up on the kind of weepy honky-tonk that wasn’t afraid to wallow in self-pity. In assembling the fine covers that make up Under the Influence (”The Way I Am,” ”She Just Started Liking Cheatin’ Songs”), he updates classics with poignant readings and eloquent instrumental solos, finding the poetry in country’s forgotten gems.
