Hell, what is there to say about Gary Floater that hasn't already been said? He's an American icon, a country visionary and a lover of lot lizards. There's not another Texas country singer who's had a greater influence on the art of contemporary song. Gary started out singing for love of money, but soon found a true outlet for the soul in his music.
Floater Rising is new tribute to the legend.
Or as his website puts it, a new tribute album, Floater Rising, is in the can and it drops April 1st, 2011.
Pre-order "Floater Rising" now and, as a bonus, Gary will include
random objects from his trailer in your package!
I have been deemed worthy of hearing the second tribute to Mr. Floater before you, and I'm here to say that out of all the albums I've heard this year, it certainly ranks among the top 50! From the poignant country philosophies of "That's What I'm Gonna Do" to the culinary poetry of "Pull Over (I Want to Eat That)," you'll be treated to Gary's homespun wisdom and his mastery of songwriting.
"Coach's Song" is every bit the powerful ode to high school football that Chesney's "The Boys of Fall" never was. And that's not a threat, it's a fact.
The coup d'étit of this collection is "Americana Me," a manifesto of Gary's alt-country credibility and a love song to the sub-genre he loves most. If you doubt it, I guarantee he'll punch you right in the mouth.
Buy this album. It's Sh*thead Dam good!
Maybe if enough FTM readers buy the CD, Gary will grant me that ever elusive interview someday. Here's to hoping!
