JT Lewis releases fun, catchy “Shoot Straight” EP


By Dave Carew 

There’s a saying in Nashville that goes, “Man, that thing is ready for the Row.” It basically means that song, artist, or musician is primed for success in the country music biz.

“Ready for the Row,” should be the caption under JT Lewis’ life right about now.

In four expertly crafted songs, Lewis’ Shoot Straight EP paints country music as the soundtrack for that uniquely joyous experience grabbed by Southern boys in pick-ups and the girls they adore in lyrics like “God came through / You came true.” These four songs sound and feel like they’d be most at home being belted out by JT from the stage of some massive arena, right before Brad Paisley or Zac Brown hit the stage.

If you love catchy choruses, stick-in-your-head hooks, and the jolt best derived from today’s commercial country music, Shoot Straight needs to hit your iPod soon.

Editor’s Note: “Underground Nashville” covers artists, authors, musicians, poets, political figures, and other compelling people and happenings not typically covered by the mainstream Nashville media. It also presents reflections and commentary from an underground/indie perspective, offering “thoughts from the shadows of a great American city.” Dave Carew
