    Singer/songwriter Cooper Kenward brings the intimacy of country ballads into a folk rock setting on Glass Mountain Rodeo’s eponymous debut. In his stories about middle-class heroes, love, loss and nostalgia persist, but from the perspective of a guitarist with an ear for edgy harmonies and subtle production. Each of the ten tracks have a solid foundation of honest telecaster riffs that alternate with tremulous vocals. And the soulful drumming of Jason Slota and modern production stylings of Robert Shelton give the album a wide range of feeling and a live-sounding glow.

    At times, the orchestration behind the country soul foundation comes into the foreground. You’ll hear trombone, pedal steel, organ, bass clarinet and the occasional synth. Most tunes are made for dancing, others are poignant and misty. But through Kenward’s guitar playing (like a young Neil Young's) and his vocal fill-ins (like an old Bob Dylan's) the vision of Glass Mountain Rodeo is clear — bring together a diverse group of music appreciators and give them music to drink to.

lyrics

Sue was in a barroom on the border of Tennessee
dancing real slow to pedal steel and I nearly fell to my knees
I ordered her a beer but she said no i'll take a whiskey instead
we played pool into the evening as the neon filled my head

We got married in a church god knows where
ordered a ring from a vending machine and honeymooned at the fair
woke up in a motel room frayed and burned
there’s many things I thought I knew but there’s still more to be learned

I don’t mind living the way I do
as long as I get a little loving
I’ll give a little loving to you

after some years we had a boy and we took him from state to state
Showing him all the things that one can love and hate
times got tough but we made it right we would wait to buy gas
every town has a secret you just have to ask

I don’t mind living the way we do
as long as we get a little loving lord
give a little loving a whole lot of loving to you

Sue left me and the boy in a town called Fredericksburg
leaving a note and an empty glass that said not to go looking for her
we settled down and took it slow I got a job in town
playing pedal steel with the boys and creating that lonesome sound

I don’t mind living the way I do
as long as I get a little loving lord
I start thinking about sue
