Album Review

The guys who make up the country group the Mavericks began their professional music career performing together at rock clubs in Florida. Now you might think that's a long ride from Nashville, but they found their way easy enough. Once they did, they didn't leave everything they learned in those rock clubs behind though, and listeners won't miss the rock & roll flavor that the Mavericks stir into a number of the songs on this 1998 album, It's Now! It's Live! As the title foretells, this is a live album. It was made during a couple of shows the group did in Canada. This is great country-rock music done the way the Mavericks do it best, but the album is a little short with only seven tracks. The songs are fan favorites though, like "There Goes My Heart," "Tonight the Bottle Let Me Down," and "I Don't Care if You Love Me Anymore."
