CD reviews for A Thousand Horses
How did A Thousand Horses get so good so quickly? They're already using the executive washroom everyone thought belonged to Florida Georgia Line and are a band with a monster debut country single ("Smoke" from 2015) and a spate of award nominations. Michael Hobby's tough-as-leather voice (with soul cred) is a big part of it. But unlike a lot of other acts, the story doesn't end with a front man.

If you hadn't bothered to look at the album jacket and know that it was A Thousand Horses putting its stamp on the music, you'd think Keith Richards was handling the guitar riffs of the opening "First Time."
