The flying Dutchman has done it again! After having gained recognition on both sides of the Atlantic with his previous offerings, Doug Adkins once more delivers a strong new album in “Dirt Roads & Fence Lines”. From the opening title track to the final “Where I Come From” , Doug is a clear example that European country music can go toe to toe with its gargantuan North American counterpart. Each song is embued with soul and a rich musical production, making any listener yearning for that good ole traditional sound to scream “Hallelujah!” With a voice that is drenched with genuine richness that can only come from a man who has seen it and done it all, Mr Adkins breathes new life into the genre and is sure to gain new fans along the way. So grab your boots , your cowboy hat and saddle up your horse, this is one ride you definitely don’t want to miss! (Nik Bernitz Pizzigoni)
