I heard this song a few weeks a go on a Canadian Country station and really like it.

The steel is really nice and sounds very much like Steve Hinson, I may be wrong, and usually am, but I'd like to know who plays on it. I've done a few searches and have come up empty.

This song has gotten stuck in my head too. Very well written and composed. Nothing surprising or original, but a good homage to 70s and 80s country. It sounds a like a cleaned-up Gary Stewart-style to me.

It's a nice song. We worked it up and added it to our song list about a month ago.

If you do it Lee, just don't include David Ball's Thinkin' Problem in your setlist. But seriously it's a good song.

It's getting quite a bit of airplay at least on the Saskatchewan country station I have need listening to.

Curt, I read that they were influenced by Gary Stewart and Merle Haggard, I also love the 1970 Cadillac in the video, it's my favorite year.

Still nobody chiming in as to who played steel, still think it's Hinson.

This song 'Fourteen Gears' is also really nice too.

Lee, Your group should consider this song too, has a Texas vibe and also just a great song with prominent steel

I think these guys are my new favorite band, this song is 'Burn Out'

Pretty sure it was Tommy Spurlock on the title tune. Don't know if there were other steel players on this project. Yes...a cool tune...cool vocalist and a pretty decent album all said. "When The Thought of You Catches Up With Me"...should've been a big hit. Country to the bone! RK
