You might never wonder about what happened to two-hit group Trick Pony, and that’s OK. But there’s reason to pay attention to what singer-guitarist Keith Burns did after the group folded — namely, he teamed up with Michelle Poe, whom sharp-eyed observers might remember for her stint as Dierks Bentley’s bassist and harmony singer. Turns out the two make some genuinely good music together, especially when they relax a bit from the struggle to fit through mainstream country radio’s ridiculously narrow keyhole and just let it rip. Their early spring single, “Don’t Get No Better Than That,” tried hard for summer anthem status and fell short, but others (“How Long Is Long Enough” and “Second Chance”) have shown some real promise, and though the confusion surrounding the release of their 2-CD debut suggests they have yet to find a solid strategy, it’s the music that matters most, right? If so, then Burns & Poe deserve — and maybe even have — a chance.
