Shotgun Rider, "Steady as She Goes"
If Midland's "Drinkin' Problem" helped reintroduce trad-country sounds to country radio, then Shotgun Rider are arriving at just the right time. The new Texas duo of Anthony Enriquez and Logan Samford aren't afraid of steel and pledge allegiance to George Strait, but they also know their way around a rock riff on songs like "Me and a Memory." New release "Steady as She Goes," however, plays up the twang, making for a dreamy sunset of a love song that paints a bright future for the genre. J.H.
