    Sammy Sadler is a journeyman country singer who has been recording since the late-1980s, but who suffered a serious career interruption when he was shot on Music Row in Nashville in the company of journalist Kevin Hughes, who was murdered as the result of a chart-fixing scheme. Sadler wasn't implicated in the scandal, but his career was derailed for a while. He reminds listeners of the incident in the closing track of HEART SHAPED LIKE TEXAS, "Thank God," the one song he co-wrote on the album, and while that might seem exploitative, it's also the only truly personal moment on the disc. Sadler has a warm, sturdy tenor voice, which he uses to convincingly render these 11 songs.The material spans familiar country styles: "I Wanna Be Loved by You" is country pop, "Heart Shaped Like Texas" is honky tonk/Western Swing, and "Thinking About Mexico" is Tex-Mex." There is also a strain of Christian religion that runs through the album, notably on "John 3:16."
