AllMusic Review by

If a country album of substance is what you're looking for, you will definitely want to pass up Winsor Harmon's Stars of Texas. Not only does the album lack the touch of a polished songwriter, it also falls short in terms of portraying notable vocal skills by Harmon. The song list reflects a mix and match of overused clichés, such as "One Step Forward, Two Steps Back," and trite imagery, as evidenced in the title cut. It is rather difficult to take an artist seriously when he is delivering vocals using a faux-redneck quasi-rap, as Harmon does in "Once Over Twice," or in a staged monotone, as in "Mighty Good to Me." Daytime television fans may recognize Harmon as an accomplished actor portraying Thorne Forrester on The Bold and the Beautiful, a role he plays extremely well. Unfortunately, the crossover from television and movies to music doesn't always seem to work as well as music to acting, à la Reba or Billy Ray Cyrus. Perhaps Harmon has more to offer; it's just not in Stars of Texas.
