While artist Pat Nason does not have a killer voice, he does have a firm grip on the country flavorings that give his songs their ring of casual authenticity. Nason’s “One Night In Texas,” a funny little story-song, is an amiable, uptempo tune where the artist’s likable voice is complemented by tasty guitar licks, harmonica fills and even trumpets. The poignant, homespun “Say The Word” is a remarkable depiction of a relationship tested by crisis, and one man’s good sense to give his lady some space. Nason weaves some pop elements into his foreboding “Long Night Coming,” which ends ominously with the sound of distant thunder. Nason’s work will resonate with listeners who appreciate country music.
