There's a lot more that goes into making a good album than just
having the talent to sing, you have to have the foresight to work with the people who can
compliment that talent to the limit. A good band to should be one that compliments rather
than overshadows the artists.. this album is backed by a great band. While Ronny
contributed to cowriting two songs, Rick Holt's name appears as the cowriter of all but
one of the ten songs.
On the album credits, Ronny wrote, "Rick Holt, I don't know how
you did it, man. You brought me enough hit songs to record two 'albums' and brought the
best out in my voice." I'll add my thanks to Rick Holt as well because he was also
the producer of Ronny's album and he created a piece of work that allows Ronny's talent to
Ronny is not only talented, he was intelligent enough to surround
himself with those in the "know"; those who used their talents to showcase
Ronny's talent. As for Ronny's talent.. he's got it, there's just no gettin' around that
at all. True and traditional country to the bone. Whether it's honky tonkin', ballads or
rockin' country.. he covers the gambit with style and finesse. His rich voice carries off
the story behind each song with a personalization, making it a part of himself. Many can
sing well, but to sing with conviction and make the listener believe, that's where the
real talent lies and Ronny has real talent.. and is real country.
"RONNY MILLER" won't be an album gathering dust on my
shelves, it's going to keep my stereo well oiled. Ronny, I'm anxious to hear your latest
CD, "Drive Fast, Turn Left". If it's half as good as this one, you've still got
a winner on your hands!
