ALBUM REVIEWS: "Marlboros & Avon" BY McBride & The Ride 8/10

Marlboros & Avon

TMC Records / Ingrooves

Producers: Terry McBride, Billy Thomas and Ray Herndon

McBride & The Ride’s members each have jaw-dropping resumes, boasting experience with country royalty such as Vince Gill and Lyle Lovett. Naturally, the trio’s latest, a five-track EP, will make you click your spurs. Title track “Marlboros & Avon” is a flavorful chunk of tear-streaked nostalgia, while “Along Comes a Girl” could’ve charted in the 90s. The disc concludes with a boot stomping cover of a Webb Pierce classic.
