Over the past week, Jesse Keith Whitley has had the opportunity to talk with other press outlets, including Taste of Country, Sounds Like Nashville, Tennessean, Billboard, Digital Journal and more, and has been applauded for his tribute.
“A patriotic country tune topped with a bit of bluegrass and Southern rock swagger” – Matthew Leimkuehler, Tennessean
“[The song] deviates from anything the name Whitley has ever been attached to, and that’s intentional. It’s not that Jesse Keith is rebelling, it’s that he’s finally found his path after years spent following one quietly cleared for him.” – Billy Dukes, Taste of Country
Country with nods to bluegrass, Try To Change My Ways tributes the neotraditionalism Keith Whitley is known for, while also showcasing the undeniable, natural-born talent of Jesse Keith. Country to the core with rock & roll’s rebellious reputation, Jesse Keith Whitley – the only son of country music legends Keith Whitley and Lorrie Morgan – epitomizes the modern-day outlaw. With music in his veins and the persona of a star, Whitley revitalizes the authentic southern rock sound rooted in a traditional country feel in tracks emulated by his strong presence and respect for tradition.
