Cory Morrow

Brand New Me (Apex Nashville)

The title of the Red Dirt titan's latest refers to the fact that after his 2005 drug bust, he's now sober and happily married. Producer Lloyd Maines gives the disc an inviting sheen, and while some will find Morrow's new message uplifting, he's still dealing in country rock cliché, only without the references to whiskey. A rote cover of Jackson Browne's "Doctor My Eyes" offers little comfort.
