There's an old saying that says to not judge a book by its cover. As great as that rule is, I think it's safe to say that there are times when we all don't exactly follow it real well. Nowhere has that been more apparent for me than in the music world. Heck, I had branded Jon Pardi as nothing but a worthless bro-country singer whenever he released “Up All Night”, and his debut album actually proved to be a pretty great slice of neo-traditional country music. After Jon, I figured that I would be able to avoid that kind of unfair branding again. That is, until I heard Drake White.
Now don't get me wrong. I always thought Drake had good intentions with his music, but I would be lying if I said that any of his singles blew me out of the water. Even with that being said, I had always figured that there was more to Drake White than his singles suggested (a common occurrence for mainstream country acts), and I was definitely eager to check out his debut album, Spark.
