This is the debut album of a young man who began pursuing a career in country music while still in his teens, sending his songs to Nashville in the hopes of having other artists record his material. BRIAN MCCOMAS, that young man's sonic calling card, finds a shortcut around that process, quite rightly asserting that a songwriter is his own best interpreter. McComas also sings tunes by a variety of Nashville pros here, but it all sounds very much of a piece. Willie Nelson gets name-checked in the inviting "Come With Me," and McComas claims new traditionalists like George Strait and Randy Travis as influences, but he mixes an honest-sounding twang with a sound aimed squarely at the mainstream, contemporary country scene, complete with liberal doses of pop, rock, and folk.
