It must sound like a can't-miss-easy-as-one-two-three idea - at least to the tin-eared tycoons running much of Nashville these days.

1.) Put together a band of guys who have at least been close to greatness (Burnin' Daylight has former members of Exile and Southern Pacific).

2.) Pick up a few of those 12-for-10-cents hot new country songs.

3.) Stand back and rake in the bucks. Unfortunately, it's not quite that simple - yet.

The best than can be said Burnin' Daylight is that "Love Worth Fighting For" is moderately catchy and "I Wouldn't Know" is not too annoying as most of the other songs on the album. Proving once again that music is a lot more complicated than mathematics.
