Mike Kuster’s sophmore studio album, Country So Fresh You Have to Check Your Boots, continues Mike’s celebration of traditional Country Music with songs written from the heart of a country boy.
The album explores the dynamics of troubled relationships, small-town America, an ode to Mike’s grandmother, and the mountains he loves so.
“I have put so much of myself in this album. It is not auto-biographical, but filled with the sounds, places, and people I love,” Mike shared.
The album features thirteen tracks, all written by Kuster:
- Front Porch Swing
- You Make Me Need To Cheat
- What If She Says Yes
- Frog Eye Mud Bog
- No Happiness
- Country So Fresh You Have To Check Your Boots
- Whiskey Sorrow
- Think I’ll Celebrate By Going Away
- Back To Feagaville
- Her Name In Red
- Ora Lee
- All The Women I Want Are Already Married
- Moutain Streams and Autumn Leaves
The album was produced and engineered by Dr. Ford, who produced Mike’s first studio album, Better Late Than Never. Joining Mike and Dr. Ford, who also performs percussion and keyboards, on the album are Chris Condon on guitars, Caleb Mundy on bass, and Michael Cleveland on fiddle.
