"Lee Roy Parnell is the most under rated artist in the business by the so-called powers that be. He's a perfectionist with his music as demonstrated by his wonderful voice, his unprecedented mastery of the slide guitar, and his thoughtful, solid writing ability. In addition, he's a gentleman and is often referred to as the artists' artist. Highly respected by his peers and his fans."
A superlative effort

"For the uninitiated, LRP is easily the finest slide guitarist in all of country music (perhaps all of music, period) and he is also an outstanding singer and songwriter. I saw him in concert at our fall fair in 1999 (not the first time) and was blown away (again) by his artistry.Despite owning (and loving) several of his earlier records, I honestly believe that "Every Night's A Saturday Night" may be his finest achievement. The title track is an infectious tune, as is "Lucky Me, Lucky You." Lee Roy also romps through Merle Haggard's "Honky Tonk Night Time Man" in fine fashion. My nine-month old really likes to rock along (literally!) with Lee Roy on these three tunes.However, this album also showcases Lee Roy's outstanding way with a ballad. Particularly noteworthy are "You Can't Get There From Here", "All That Matters Anymore", and "Better Word For Love." I recommend all three of these songs as prime examples of what true musical artistry is.Blended throughout all of these songs is Lee Roy's truly amazing guitar work, which insinuates itself right into your head (and heart). I absolutely agree with the Entertainment Weekly review at the Amazon site, which says that LRP is looking more and more like an artist, rather than a star.Just go buy it--if you do, it'll stay on your CD player for months, just like my copy has."
