Using the term "lucky" to describe McGuffey Lane's career is akin to calling Shaquille O'Neal "tiny," a delicious irony not lost on the band. Call Me Lucky's jacket features a guy happily listening to his walkman, oblivious to the train bearing down on him. The imagery is not an accident given the group's tragic past of career-threatening and personal strife.
This edition of McGuffey Lane only has one holdover from the old days, guitarist John Schwab. However, the signature sound of McGuffey Lane remains. When compared to the modernized country formula led by the likes of Garth Brooks, it seems even more traditional, guaranteed to please old-timers lost in current trends.
