"Black Hat Saloon" was the album that got me acquainted to Rusty Wier's music. I was always on the lookout for new Southern Rock, but I also very much enjoy the Outlaw Country scene. Well, Rusty's music's right in the middle of all that sweet goodness. I still think this album ranks among his best, though I really love them all. Rusty rocks some and knows his way with Country too, though there's nothing sappy about this music. Great lyrics and a good sense of humor combined with great musicianship and a terrific, characteristic voice. He may be quite unknown, but there's no justice in that. So, do yourself a favor, grab this and enjoy. I think it's time.
