Do You Believe Me Now

The best song on Jimmy Wayne's new album is actually a re-recorded version of "Stay Gone," a hit off his 2003 self-titled debut that is included here as a bonus track. That may not bode well for the rest of this CD, but it's solid if unspectacular. He's already landed a No. 1 country single with the soft-rockish title cut. But Wayne comes closest to matching "Stay Gone" on the Patty Loveless duet "No Good for Me" and "One on One," a soulful ballad that, although not a remake of the 1982 Hall & Oates tune, reveals an affinity for the duo. So does a certain guest vocalist: John Oates.
