John Baumann has chosen an auspicious title for his latest album. With Proving Grounds, due a week after Friday’s Mucky Duck gig, the rising young singer and songwriter signals his awareness of the treacherous ground he’s treading as one of the Texas music circuit’s so-called next big things. Now based in Austin, the San Antonio-born Baumann has also lived in Fort Worth, Lubbock and Amarillo, lending extra credibility to his poetic accounts of the rapidly changing state he depicts in songs like “Eagle Ford” and “Vices.” Baumann’s writing has already drawn interest from Nashville’s A-list — his Hayes Carll co-write “Gulf Moon” was reportedly considered for Kenny Chesney’s latest LP, Cosmic Hallelujah, though it didn’t make the final cut — so it’s likely only a matter of time before something clicks. Perhaps that breakthrough is even on Proving Grounds.
