"You know, years ago my late father told me that 'boys don't become men until after they turn 40.' Well, listening to the tracks of the new album, I must say I understand now Dad! There is a wonderful new depth, strength, passion, experience and maturity to Billy Dean's voice, his song selection and the entire arc of this album.
It is simply wonderful - and oh so encouraging - that there are people out there in this world, who continue working and growing at their craft/skill. That reaching a certain level of success does not breed complacency. That passing the age of 40 shouldn't mean the end of anything - rather it is just the beginning of a great age!
Billy Dean is such a great example of that to us, and to his children. He may have left the public arena for a few years with his musical gifts to focus on his children (and what a great decision that was!), but this album shows that he didn't let the music leave him nor did he allow it to flounder. Instead he kept working and practicing, honing his incredible gift and talents, until today he graciously offers us this new and glorious present.
Thank you Mr. Dean for proving that we do get better with age, that 'dropping off' the radar for a while can be a wonderful thing in so many ways, and for once again sharing your incredible talent and voice with all of us.

"One of his best CD's. Has a couple of his old tracks in there at the end too. Every song is a winner. I wish he was having a concert near where I live. I DEFINITELY recommend this CD. If you like Billy Dean you will absolutely OVE this CD. If you like country music you will LOVE this CD. I bought it, put it on my computer, and let my mom have the CD for her car, and now she won't give it back. It's that good. Billy Dean is back and better than ever."
