Nothing to See Here
NOTHING TO SEE HERE is Ted Allen's first album. Recorded by the outstanding musicians at Song Cellar studios in Nashville, the songs blend catchy melodies with the raw emotion and clever wordplay that are the hallmarks of country music. The album flirts with various styles, from straight-ahead rockers like 'Hell Or High Water' and the title track to the harmonica-driven swagger of 'Ain't Enough Whiskey (Going, Going, Gone)' to the poppy 'Don't Touch My Heart' and 'You Break It, You Bought It'. 'Her Heart Is In The Right Place' boasts a Beatles-inspired groove while 'Down Easy' and 'Last' evoke the lush harmonies of the Eagles and Rascal Flatts and the heart-on-sleeve vulnerability of Kenny Chesney. Fourteen songs of hope and despair, love and lust, heartache, heartbreak, and other affairs of the heart: There's Nothing To See Here....
