Highway 377 (Underground Sound, 2001)

Cross Canadian Ragweed

Reviewed by Bill Silvers

It's not hard to understand why Cross Canadian Ragweed have won a loyal following in Oklahoma and north Texas. They play radio-friendly roots rock that would have sounded at home anytime in the last 20 years. Front man Cody Canada helped write 11 of the 13 tracks and is a solid lead guitarist to boot.

The high points are notable. "Alabama" is an exceptionally strong track, fully deserving airplay and wide exposure - the sort of song that ought to be a hit. The acoustic solo title song provides balance to the rock that predominates, testimony both to Canada's range and his faith. A hidden gem is the uncredited 13th track, "Daddy's At Home," written and sung by drummer Randy Ragsdale. The disc provides a solid showcase for Ragweed's sound.
