Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

RADNEY FOSTER

Everything I Should Have Said

2014-04-28

Singer/Songwriter Radney Foster is hard to classify. First impression: country singer. He's got the accent, but not quite a twang, he's from Texas, and he's had country hits. Click on his website, and the title bar says "Americana Artist". Some of the cuts on Everything I Should Have Said will stand by themselves as folk. He takes things slow, and contemplative and mostly quiet. He mostly sings wistful love songs while strumming his guitar.

One exception is "Not In My House", an uptempo electrified cry for tolerance and a declaration that he won't use the f-word (and in fact, the word is not used in the song, you have to pay close attention to puzzle it out).
