Picks and Pans Review: When the Wrong One Loves You Right

Wade Hayes

The world doesn't need a new Waylon Jennings quite yet, but when the time comes, Hayes will be a good candidate. A deep-voiced Oklahoman, he sounds equally at home in rascally, playful mode ("Are We Having Fun Yet") or lamenting a lost love ("Summer Was a Bummer").

He drew on a number of proven songsmiths for the material on this, his third album. Hayes, Nashville veteran Don Cook, his producer, and Chick Rains wrote "One More Night with You." Lonnie Wilson and Rains teamed with Hayes to write "Are We Having Fun Yet." Steve Diamond and Mark D. Sanders collaborated on "The Day She Left Tulsa (in a Chevy)." They're a lively bunch of songs, enjoyably rendered by one of the most entertaining newcomers in country music. (Columbia/DKC)
