In this world of endless pop country tracks, Ruby Force is a refreshing breath of classic country goodness. The musical project of Erin McLaughlin, the persona she takes on is confident, sweet, and incredibly able to single handedly bringing back the roots of country. Influences range from Dolly to Jenny Lewis. Her lyrics are clever but always relatable. She simply doesn’t try to blow you away with metaphors too heavy for a three-minute song. Her debut album Evolutionary War draws on the songwriters personal experiences of self-discovery and features some heavy hitters in the industry who have worked with acts like The Black Keys, Father John Misty, and The Shins. The result is a beautiful collection of genre busting and vulnerable tracks that will reach a wide range of listeners. “Cowboy” is a classic story of country love that I for one would love to hear more of on country radio stations.
