James McNair / Press

“The lyric mentioned before comes from a song by Maxfield Camp and his writing partner and band mate James McNair called “Outlaw.” While the song holds heavy meaning and expresses dark, emotional lyrics, like any good country song you can still relate to it, follow it, and get it stuck in your head.”

“When talking with McNair it is clear that he has put in long hours to perfect his craft, but enjoys the process. While in college, he wrote songs and learned to play the guitar, bass, mandolin, and drums. He is quick to report he has a "catalog of over 150 songs" ranging from Americana, Country, Rock, Pop and Blues.”

“As you might expect there’s a slow drawling quality to McNair’s vocal. It meanders pleasantly around the tale of southern living that is ‘like you should’ , its languid, reflective stuff with lines about knowing that ‘you’d be here if you could’ , this isn’t twee, cornball country but has a genuine quality underwriting it’s lyrics.”

"To keep his songs fresh and original, McNair experiments with different chord structures and keys."
