From the opening guitar riffs of THE DREAMER's first song, "Heavy Lifting," it's clear that there's more than a little rock & roll in Blake Shelton's country music, but that doesn't mean the lad hasn't got a sense of Music City history. In case you thought the country tradition of trucking songs died out with Dave Dudley, Shelton serves to remind that it's very much alive--though now decked out with modern-sounding rhythm loops--on "Asphalt Cowboy." "In My Heaven" finds Shelton imagining his version of paradise, a place where there's no violence, loneliness, or dishonesty. The album's working-man-with-heart-of-gold stance, widescreen power chords, and anthemic choruses suggest that Shelton is something of a country Springsteen, but the bottleneck guitar on "My Neck of the Woods" and the honky-tonk fiddle of "Georgia in a Jug" leave little doubt as to the side of the Mason-Dixon line on which his heart resides.
