Mount Airy, North Carolina native Joey Nevada is gearing up to release his first full-length album “The Ride” on March 30th, at the newly renovated Reeves Theatre in Elkin, North Carolina. With the first single “Sweet Southern Ride” released back in January, “The Ride” is Nevada’s second CD recording with the first, being an EP consisting of six songs titled “Never Heard The Words”. “The Ride” was recorded and Produced in James Brickey’s (lead guitarist for Joey Nevada) home studio, taking roughly 6 months in total.
The album is compiled of 12 songs ranging from good time songs that you would for sure here on a summer playlist along with songs that hit a little closer to home for the listener. With the new modern country feel but unlike others, Nevada isn’t straying away from the classic twang that makes it country. Tracks like “Better Than You” is a bit of a tongue-in-cheek breakup song that you can’t help but get a smirk out of. Then there are tracks like “Pieces To The Puzzle”, that are on the more serious side of things that explain how sometimes you have to “Fall flat on your face, to see this is where you’re meant to be”. Joey Nevada and James Brickey co-wrote all 12 tracks and you can hear both of their influences, ranging from southern rock, pop, to even gospel.
