The ballads — the heartbroken “Haven't Seen the Last of You,” the uplifting “Missed You Just Right” and mournful “You Ain't Alone” — are particularly soft and supple.
Maybe it was the success of his last album's infectious earworm “Red Solo Cup” — a remixed version of the ditty is included on the new album's deluxe version — but Keith seems to have beer on the brain this go-round.
He tunefully ties one on with “I Like Girls That Drink Beer,” “Cold Beer Country” and “Haven't Had a Drink All Day,” making “Hope on the Rocks” a particularly party-ready release.
Leather jacket optional.
