Aren't Pat Green fans lucky? A little over a year after releasing his album "Wave on Wave," Green's back with another album aptly titled, "Lucky Ones."
Green, who is known for stellar live performances, didn't feel the need to be like most artists who wait 2 or 3 years in between CDs. Why wait when your music is this good?
Green had some help on his latest album which puts "Wave on Wave" to shame. The biggest hit on "Wave on Wave" was the title track, but "Lucky Ones" is packed with singles.
Songs such as "College," which is a duet with Brad Paisley, will serve as a theme song for every fraternity across the United States. Other highlights on the album are "Baby Doll" written by Green and Rob Thomas and "Lucky Ones," which was written by Green's partner on the song "Texas in 1880," Radney Foster.
The first single released from the new album, "Don't Break My Heart Again" is a great song, but it isn't even the best track on the CD.
Which means Green fans have a lot to look forward to when purchasing this album.
Green's songs are all very relatable and have catchy lyrics. After the release of this album, people other than those from Texas and surrounding areas, will know what everyone around here has known for years.
Green has unmistakable talent. His sound is as clear on stage as it is on his latest CD.
