Wade Bowen kicked around the Texas Red Dirt circuit for a decade, becoming a regional phenomenon, before busting out to the wider world with his first major label release, The Given. In a scene overloaded with macho boasters and smiley-face cover boys, he's not afraid to play the classic country role of the sad-hearted lover. Few of Bowen's contemporaries would start an album with an anti-anthem like "Saturday Night," where the sad-voiced singer asks a bartender to toss a bunch of drunk girls out and tells the band to turn it down. On "Say Anything," Bowen continues his dismantling of country tropes, telling his objet d'amour, "a pick-up line just ain't my style, and I assume it isn't yours." By the time Bowen underlines his Lone Star bona fides by duetting with Guy Clark on Townes Van Zandt's "To Live Is to Fly," his soft sell is a done deal.
