I had the opportunity to listen to the CD and really enjoyed all the tracks.  My personal favorite is "Always Gonna Be That Way".  Here is a little tease of the lyrics from the song...

Summer turns this town to dust

When it don't rain, the farmers cuss

But they break the ground and they make the hay

And it's always gonna be that way.
