Review: Dirt Boy Vol. 2- Drew Green

Drew Green is beyond a shadow of a doubt the Dirt Boy. If Dirt Boy Vol. 1 wasn’t evidence enough, Dirt Boy Vol. 2 proves that Green is an artist willing to muddy everything from his boots to genre lines. In an interview with Worlds Of Country earlier this year, Green said that he “draws inspiration from everyone from Alan Jackson to Dr. Dre”. Dirt Boy Vol. 2 is the perfect manifestation of Green’s unique musical ethos that sets him apart from so many in Nashville.

Featuring five songs, Dirt Boy Vol. 2 espouses many of the values instilled in Green while growing up on a Middle Tennessee tree farm. Songs like the title track and Get Up and Get It show Green’s appreciation for the grind and pay homage to his upbringing. Cold Beer and Copenhagen is the EP’s standout track as Green lists the vices that he can’t seem to quit including the girl he knows is no good for me. Cold Beer and Copenhagen is clever and relatable and the simple production allows the lyric to cut straight to the heart. Hooch is a small town party anthem with a refreshing twist as Green once again pays homage to his roots, while John Deere Blue closes the project on a somber but smart note.

From Get Up and Get It to John Deere Blue Green brilliantly details the ups and downs associated with the Dirt Boy lifestyle. Green’s ability to merge country lyricism with hip-hop style production once again show that he is artist willing to step outside of the cookie cutter mold and take risks all while staying true to his roots.
