CD Review: Gannon Adams "Breakin' Me Down"

Gannon Adams from Mansfield, Ga, has come onto the scene in the last year, having his music played on The Bull Atlanta's Backyard Country and recently opening for Merle Haggard. Part of his progression is releasing his own ten song cd called "Breakin' Me Down". Release in early 2012, Gannon has put together one of the best cd's that any new artist could do. The track "Goodbye To The Old Me" is an anthem to the guy that wants to improve for his girl and put the "Old Me" be better. "Ghost Town" was co-written by Jason Aldean, as well as seven other tracks on the cd. The cut is about the lonely world when a love has left. One of the best written songs on the cd "Cowboy Lady" has a great retro country feel of a story of a guy out on the town and meets a lady but even though he's tempted, he explains to her that he has a love at home. Title track "Breakin' Me Down" has been a popular song on Backyard Country, a cut about that love one that really gets into him and has him falling apart over her. "Hard To Say Goodbye" is the very common problem that anyone has when it comes to trying to get over one someone. Gannon shows off his ballad vocals with "Nothing Left To Lose" about the guy at the end of the rope with the girl so he's putting all on the line for her after losing her. He picks it back up with the next track "Hold On", he's telling the girl he's about to let loose his love on her. With help from Rhett Akins and Charlie Daniels writing the next cut, "Friday Night In Dixie" , that was also cut by Rhett in 2002, Gannon put his own touch on the song of a story of partying on a southern night. Gannon comes back down with "When I'm Through Looking Back" about moving on from a past love. He ends the cd with the country rockin' "Think About Me", that will have you top tapping and singing along.
Gannon has a fresh sound to country music yet still has a old school country twang in his voice. Many of the songs on this cd are "radio ready" and is a great showcase of Gannon's talent that we feel will take him far in country music.
Writers or co-writers on the cd are: Kelly Archer, Justin Weaver, Rodney Clawson, Vicky McGhee, Jason Aldean, Curtis Powers, Tully Kennedy, Bobby Pinson, Jeffrey Stevens, Brad Akins, Rhett Akins, Charlie Daniels, David Murphy and Kim Tribble.
