BO ISAAC & THE ROUNDERS, “Dollar,” Out of the Woods, 13 tracks

Bo Isaac is a 29-year-old eastern Kentucky native who says he was raised on the music of the bluegrass masters.

And his new album, “Dollar,” sure sounds like he absorbed a lot of what he was hearing.

Elmer Burchett Jr., a respected bluegrass singer and songrwriter, wrote or co-wrote 11 of the tracks.

The others are both from the public domain — “John Henry” and “Nobody’s Business.”

The title cut, which features an old-time sound, finds the singer wondering where his money and his woman went while he was working two jobs.

“Flat Footin’, Tennessee” is a dance tune.

“A Whisper Away” is a gospel song performed as a duet with Haley Burchett.

“Whippoorwill” is about a woman who left her footprint on his heart.

“Miner’s Cry” tells the story of a cave-in that killed 29 miners.

“Lee County Line” is about a man who married a moonshiner’s daughter and inherited her grandfather’s recipe.

“Road To Summertown” is nostalgia for skinny dipping and blackberry picking.

Good album.
