Beatroute Review of " The County Line"

Ontario country-rocker Tom Savage's newest release, The County Line, is a continuation of the defiant, individualistic road-weary music that he made with his last effort, Never Shed No Tears.

With this album, Savage replicates the live bar-room feel that lends itself well to his music, which is somewhere between Bruce Springsteen and Guitar Town-era Steve Earle.

Highlights include the bleak Tex-Mex track " The County Line, " and the wistful, resigned "When You Were Mine".

This is a CD full of rousing music that seems like it was meant for dark nights driving on prairie roads.
