    Watson puts together a collection of songs about grief and loss for his fifth release, which is dedicated to his fiance, who died in an automobile accident. The album is pining and remorseful and features string accompaniment on most of the 14 tracks. On it Watson still harbors a deep appreciation for the Merle Haggard-perfected Bakersfield sound, but here he does so without the usual honky tonk grit that he has when he's accompanied by his band, Lonestar. This is a quiet set dripping with romantic longing that's elevated occasionally by the upbeat "Your the Best Part of Me" and the swing-inflected "Money Can't Buy Her Love," but that's anchored in the deep despair that led Watson, who nearly lost his own life during a drug and alcohol binge brought on by the loss, to write these songs. ~ Travis Drageset
