"Music Row Publications"

The opening notes to Colte Bradley's new CD "Ain't It Amazing What One Little Screw Will Do" captures you as it is just as easily an Alan Jackson song as it is Colte Bradley's. The new Rustic Records release is a contemporary Country Music CD with a traditionalist heart. You can get a little of everything from all the normal Country subject matter thrown in but for the most part Ain't It Amazing avoids the normal country clichés. A good mix that lets you hear styles resembling a bit of bluegrass, classic country, upbeat dance floor packers and of course some tear jerkin' ballads.
Colte Bradley even shows off some songwriting on three of the tracks here. There are hints of Alan Jackson, a bit of Joe Diffie and a definite classic country influence in Colte Bradley's vocals. The western North Carolina native has just enough twang to pull off the traditional, and a subtle charm that proves to be a unique mixture. Colte Bradley also took place in a Merle Haggard country talent search to find an opening act for his tour with Willie Nelson, and out of the top 450 contestants, Colte Bradley placed in the top 10.
A sense of humor added to true country sounds and the odd ballad tossed in here and there for good measure. While listening to Colte Bradley, I thought this is what REAL country is supposed to sound like. That doesn't mean the CD is without flaws, it means simply that Ain't It Amazing is a breath of fresh air, and I just wish more artists and performers would hold proud their country roots instead of trying to cross-over to other genres.
The opening number "Ain't It Amazing (What a Little Screw Will Do)" reminds us not to take life for granted and take notice of the smaller things in life. Other great tracks is the honky-tonkin' "Bear Huggin'", "Daddy Made Dew" a great ode to moonshine making and running, and "You Got It All" with opening spoken words that you could swear was Conway Twitty. Colte Bradley serves up a good CD for the country fans, you owe it to yourself to at least take a listen.

"In a just world, this would be allowed to compete on an even footing with any major-label product out there. In fact, it's better than a lot of what I hear from the Big Boys. His delivery is resonant and heartfelt. The production is beautifully understated. And the song is breathtakingly well written."
- Robert K. Oermann, Music Row Publications

"WIFE Radio, Connersville, IN"

"KLAA Louisiana Country 103.5"

"I recently put In Their Eyes, by Colte Bradley into my new music showdown feature I have each night. The listener response was overwhelmingly in favor of the song. Each night I played it, listeners called to let me know how much they enjoyed the song and wanted to hear it again. A smart programmer would definitely add this song to their playlist!" - Ke Del Rio, KLAA Louisiana Country 103.5
