It Is What It Is
From Vintage Gutar, January 2009 Review: To call Trey Hensley an "old soul" or "throwback" misses the point. His take on country music isn't merely a neo-traditional rearrangement of the musical furniture, but a complete gut of the room...Hensley's voice oozes a worldliness difficult to reconcile with hisyouth...And he is also one mean guitar picker; on Larry Gatlin's "Billy Jack Willis" Hensley pulls out a passel of hot licks, twisting his Telecaster's strings into musical shapes reminiscent of the late Jerry Reed and Don Rich... Is the world of "hot" country music ready for a classic throwback? Trey Hensley aims to find out. 'It Is What It Is' has more soul in the first 10 seconds than you'll find in an hour on any commercial country music radio station -- Steve Stone.
