Some are saying the new album of songs titled “Shadows Of Time” by recording artist Royal Wade Kimes “The Gentleman Outlaw,” has been released just in the nick of time. Country Music today is more Contemporary Pop than Country, more Sam Smith than George Jones, more forced than created, more compressed than recorded, and continuously sounds like streaming water pouring endlessly over a waterfall, making the same sound over and over.
“Shadows Of Time” debuted on KWKZ-FM 106.1 in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, and received phones continuously from California to Canada for the two hour run. Bill Anderson owner of the station and Susan Bell program director is calling “Shadows Of Time” a Royal Wade Kimes best. The production is reminiscent of the early days of the Judd’s, when produced by Brent Maher. And it comes with a forgotten concept… not one song sounds alike on an album collection of twelve tracks. “Shadows Of Time” is Country Music with such simplicity it is confounding. It reminds us of a simpler time in our lives and what Country Music is supposed to be. It’s about good things in life, families, home, love, excitement, and yes, heartache, but it doesn’t stop there. Kimes masterfully sprinkled in history with times gone by and filled an arena with rodeo, outlaws, and a lone cowboy standing at the end of the trail. “Shadows Of Time” gently and pleasantly reminds us… that maybe we’ve gotten off the country road we were supposed to be on. Country Music has evolved into something few recognize as even being Country, let alone Country and Western, maybe because it morphed into something called Contemporary Pop Country, and from that has mutated into country grunge crudeness with titles of vulgarity and smuttiness. Kimes “Shadows Of Time” may be more than a record. Could it be the unassuming spark that causes the Country Format to take a hard look at its self, and consider where it’s headed? The ironic thing is, Kimes is known as “The Gentleman Outlaw,” and it may be an outlaw that calls attention to a brand of music gone rogue. Kimes “Shadows Of Time” is doing the talking for now, but you can bet if pressed on the issue, Kimes would… “buck the tiger.”
