Radney Foster got his start churning out country rock British Invasion-style with Foster and Lloyd. In his nearly two decades as a solo act since then, his live shows have usually rocked pretty hardhard in a country veinand some of that energy has made it onto his albums. But who wouldve expected him to arrive at the mid-century mark with such a head of steam? Facing mortality stirred Fosters spiritual sensibilities, and he let the fervor boil over in a surprisingly joyful way on his upcoming album Revival, recorded with his road band, The Confessions. Hes also just launched Devils River Records in order to release it. Its no surprise, then, that Foster is in the mood to party like a true Nashville veteran: with folks who have played a role in his career so farfrom Bill Lloyd to Dierks Bentley and Darius Rucker (both of whom sing on the new album)sitting in.
