Wonderful voice ASHLEY McBRYDE is a famous country celebrity
from Nashville, Tennessee. She released her highly praised 5th longplayer
LINDEVILE a couple of weeks ago. One of those sublime country albums
that confirms that the genre is just timeless.
Stereogum wrote: “A lot of people put a lot of work into this record,
and they made something that resonates on a deep, emotional level.
Give it up for them.”
His characteristic Americana voice gives this romantic lullaby gem a melancholic, warm, and romantic timbre. An instant earworm. But what makes this pearl extra special is its story. It’s about a local strip club in a small (fictional) town (all album’s songs are centered around that town) where Jesus appeared one night – incognito – to have a drink with drunken barflies, whores, and queers who lost touch with the real, hard world outside.
Seems like the Holy One was there to see if his beloved dropouts are allright. It’s both a hilarious and risky story. Many will be offended by it, mostly Christians. Well, that’s their problem, for me, it’s a fabulous tale and tune. Hallelujah, indeed!
Jesus loves the drunkards and the whores and the queers
Would you recognize him if he bought you a beer
Have a beer, listen and sing along…
