Shot of Life
Shot of Life, is Simon Balkey's first release...Most of the songs on this album are written or co-written by Simon. The smooth country sounds on this album are reminiscent of classic George Strait with a contemporary flare that can only be described as 'modern honky-tonk.' This album has it all...including the true country anthem 'Around That Cooler,' the oh-so smooth 'Pretty As Pretty Gets,' and the regretted late night phone call...'Dial This Number.' Simon's humor shows through in 'Leaving You For Jack,' while 'She's An Angel' brings the honesty back into the love song. This album is an awesome mix of great country feel from the past with the perfect sound of the present... This album is a fantastic 'Shot of Life'!
