CJ Plain—Best of 2017, Top 30


Bartels album, "The Devil, God & Me", made the #1 slot on Music God CJ Plain's 'BEST OF 2017 Top 30 Country/Americana/Bluegrass' list!

It took exactly one listen to this record for me to know that I had found my Country record of the year. Imagine if Johnny Cash was around to take over singing duties for The Drive-By Truckers. The song “Two At A Time” might be one of the finest written songs I’ve heard in the past 5 years. The title track is also a haunting tune that is carried by Evan’s amazing voice accompanied by his solo acoustic guitar. There’s not a bad song on this record or a note out of place. At the end of the day, I’d trade ALL of the musicians on FM radio for ONE artist of this caliber!
