DAVE ADKINS, “Dave Adkins,” Mountain Fever. 12 tracks

Pikeville, Ky., native Dave Adkins began playing bluegrass as an 8-year-old.

And by the time he was 17, he was performing at Dollywood.

After trying his hand in country and rock, Adkins returned to bluegrass — his first love — in 2010 with Dave Adkins & Republik Steel.

In 2015, he teamed with Edgar Loudermilk for a successful album.

And now, Adkins is back with a self-titled solo album.

A singer-songwriter, he wrote six of the 12 tracks on the album

“Emmaline” tells the story of an eastern Kentucky coal trucker about to leave his wife for another woman.

“Russell Fork River” is a tragic story about a woman who drowned and an innocent man who was hanged.

“Angel Song” finds a man wanting to hear his dead wife’s song from heaven.

“A Whole Lot More To Tell” is uptempo gospel.

“Turn and Burn” is a hard-driving song about a trucker.

“You Don’t Have To Go To Be Gone” finds a couple living together but not really together.

“Sold” topped the country charts for John Michael Montgomery two decades ago.

A good album.
