Review of Nudie – Remember This (Independent)

1 panel front out & in for export.inddContrary to what you might be led to believe by country music radio in today’s day and age, there are still plenty of artists out there who proudly hold the classic country torch high. In Atlantic Canada, Prince Edward Island’s Nudie is the head of the class. The music on Remember This owes a great debt to the likes of Willie Nelson, Hank Williams and Merle Haggard and not just in the musical sense. Although there is little denying the musical similarities, Nudie’s simplistic approach to the instrumentation heard on these 12 songs is a welcome breath of fresh air, ultimately returning country music to its rightful roots.
