We gave it a C+

On his debut, Lawson tries to find the middle ground between Newgrass Revival and Garth Brooks, with mixed results. Give him credit for an energetic, John Cowan-ish voice, promise as a songwriter, and the guts to record perhaps the weirdest country cover ever — a banjo-driven take on Marvin Gaye’s ”Let’s Get It On.”
