“With the calibre of material and Bratcher’s sheer talent, this is a sure fire winner.” –  Lins Honeyman, @ CrossRhythms

 

“Bratcher blues rockin’ traditional country songs” – Jim Clark, @ The Lee County Courier Tupelo, MS

 

“On the delightful This is Blues Country, Kansas City-based electric guitarist Jimmie Bratcher revisits 10 can’t-miss classics reimagined in varying degrees of re-creation in rock, blues or r&b formats.” – Jerome Clark, @ Rambles.net

 

Most music fans are aware that there’s little difference between country music and blues as far as lyrical content goes……most of the difference is in delivery and instrumentation.  The great thing about Bratcher’s efforts on This is Blues Country is that he didn’t merely cover these classic tunes.  He transforms them into something fresh and unique that should please fans of both genres. – Graham Clarke @ Friday Blues Fix Blog & Blues Bytes

 

10 classic country tunes done with a twist of blues and rock.  From Hank Williams to Jimmie Davis, Marty Robbins , Hank Snow, Merle Haggard, Don Gibson and more were given the Jimmie Bratcher, blues/rock and soul treatment.  The result is a delightful album of tunes we all grew up listening to. but in a totally different light.  Each tune was handled with the utmost respect and care, giving as much work as it took to see that the originals did not get lost on the make-over. – Bill Wilson @ ChickenWilson
