Fear and Saturday Night

Sounds a lot like the determined gruffness of John Prine and the rock-tinged country of later-period Lucinda Williams, but with more affinity for classic rock. Bingham is a fair songwriter, though his gravelly voice sometimes comes up a bit short on range and nuance.  Still, this is what more country music should aim for.
