"Front to back this album is amazing. From the emotional "You're Not Alone", the classic country sound of "Whiskey Burns", the catchy "Bumble Bee" and "Sip Sip", the timely "Bad News" this album left me wanting more. Love the home town feel of "Grew Up Home" And the good time feel and vibe of "Double Life" and "Luck". My personal opinion is buy this album, it won't disappoint. Can't wait to hear what comes from Jake next." - Kyle C
