Chris "BadNews" Barnes - BadNews Travels Fast

Chris "BadNews" Barnes has really found a home in Nashville - literally, figuratively and musically. On his latest BadNews Travels Fast, Barnes refines an already top shelf blues rock approach with some really cool cats like Tom Hambridge in the production chair and guitar great Walter Trout assisting.

There are so many choice cuts here but it is safe to say the subject matter veers more heavy than hokum by pulling true life stories from the depth's of the singer's soul, personal life and a potentially murky past that tackle drug use ("Mushrooms Make Me A Fun Guy"), psychological disorders ("His Majesty The Baby") and marital infidelity ("True Blues").

On the album's 11 Nashville-produced tracks Barnes has found a groove that is deeply rooted in his strong commitment to playing the clown for the common man - and by doing so - he has never been more convincing. And, he has never sounded so good.
