‘Something Worth Remembering’ is an exemplary country record by Pratt. The album has a feel good factor about it, with up-beat songs such as ‘You Gotta Jump in’ and ‘A Song You Can Drink a Beer to’.
His tone of voice and style is not too dissimilar from early Jason Aldean; he leans slightly more towards the rock side of country. Pratt knows how to write a catchy chorus melody and he has mastered the clever lyricism that the genre is famed for as well as addressing some of the stereotypical themes of boots, beers and whiskey. He utilises the country instrumentation well too with slide guitar adding a flare to songs such as ’Til Your Boots Are Dirty’.
The ballad ‘To Find Us’ is a particular gem on the record, he is joined by the lovely Savannah Nider, their voices blending so well together. The chorus felt a little busy on first listen but after hearing it a second time, it feels intense which helps to deliver the message and compliments the vocal melody well.
Gary Pratt delivers a really great country album and I look forward to hearing more from this talented and experienced artist.
