Without much debate, Bruce Robison is considered at the very top of the pecking order of contemporary Texas songwriters, capable of James Taylor levels of wit and empathy within the aesthetic territory generally staked out by Merle Haggard. Over the years, he’s earned plenty of mailbox money for songs that later made their way into the mouths of big-time stars like Tim McGraw and George Strait, but Robison’s heart seems much closer to the no-frills Americana he often makes with wife Kelly Willis or the cast of musicians featured on his latest album, Bruce Robison & the Back Porch Band. Radiating the collaborative spirit of The Next Waltz, Robison’s term for the community centered around his recording studio/base of operations in Lockhart, the album mixes songs he wrote or co-wrote with a few he just likes (The Who’s “Squeezebox,” George Jones’s “Still Doin’ Time”), creating the kind of laid-back atmosphere that allows Robison and his fellow musicians to thrive.
