article imageReview: Charlie Worsham amazes on debut country album 'Rubberband' Special

On August 20, Warner Music Nashville recording artist Charlie Worsham released his debut studio album “Rubberband.” Charlie co-wrote all 11 tracks on the record and he co-produced the project with Ryan Tyndell.
His CD opens with the catchy and upbeat lead single “Could It Be,” which is nearing the Top 20 on the Billboard Hot Country Airplay charts, and it is followed by “Want Me To,” which is an equally uplifting tune and the perfect sing-along.
Although “Young To See” may be a rebellious vocal, Charlie sings it beautifully and it stands out as one of my personal favorites on the collection.
The title cut showcases his versatility and range as a vocalist, songwriter and instrumentalist and “How I Learned To Pray” is a moving and exquisite ballad, thus displaying his delicate vocals.
In “Tools of The Trade,” he collaborated with two of his greatest musical influences, Country Music Hall of Famer Vince Gill and Marty Stuart.
“Mississippi in July,” written with vivid imagery, is yet another stellar track, where his gentle vocals are reminiscent to those of country superstar Keith Urban.
Equally soothing and refreshing tunes are “Trouble Is” and “Someone Like Me.”
“Rubberband” closes with the haunting yet heartfelt ballad “Love Don’t Die Easy.”
The Verdict
In summation, country singer Charlie Worsham does a remarkable job on his first studio effort “Rubberband.” He maintains great control over his voice and it is perfect-pitch throughout and the record’s production is not overdone. There are four songs on here that have the potential of becoming radio singles such as “Young To See,” “Mississippi in July,” “Someone Like Me,” and “How I Learned to Pray.” Charlie possesses one of the most calming and lilting male voices that the modern country genre has to offer and he garners an A rating for this CD.
The Warner Music Group, which is home to such gifted country artists as Hunter Hayes, Blake Shelton and Brett Eldredge, sure knows great talent, and Charlie Worsham is no exception. With this new “Rubberband” release, he stands out as one of Nashville’s most promising newcomers and I would not be surprised to see his name up for the Academy of Country Music (ACM) award for “Top New Male Vocalist” next year.
