It's admirable when a musician gets back to his roots, there's no questioning that. But in
a lot of ways, it's even more admirable when an artist has no need to do that – having
never lost touch with those roots in the first place. Jason Boland falls squarely into the
latter category, having spent the better part of the last 15 years entrenching himself in
the so-called "red dirt" of his native state of Oklahoma and adopted home in Texas and
while spreading his musical branches to cover a remarkable amount of territory.
