Bakersfield (MCA Nashville)
by Vince Gill & Paul Franklin

FOR FANS OF: Buck Owens, Merle Haggard, Glen Campbell
Rating: 4 Stars

Neotraditional country star (and Amy Grant’s hubby) Vince Gill teams with highly respected steel guitarist Paul Franklin to pay tribute to Buck Owens and Merle Haggard, two pioneers of the “Bakersfield Sound” from the early 1960s through mid- ‘70s. While it certainly makes for a successful modern day collaboration, Bakersfield is also a vibrant testament to ten vital California-inspired country tunes from back in the day worth rediscovering.
