“I enjoyed your music! You remind me of Johnny Cash who I saw three times. You have a great sound! Best of luck with your music!”
— Gene Gardiner & The Double Cross
“Creative work and sound.
We wish you much success!”
“Darlene ! Awesome roots Country !!!”
“Hi JR. Just listening to your music. It's very good. Living in Canada, I've heard lots of country, so being a "limey" (me too), I think you do an excellent job. You'd fit in well in any country venue over here.”
“Es hat jetzt etwas länger gedauert bis das Album „Truckers Finest“ von J.R. Leonard bei mir auf dem Schreibtisch gelandet ist, aber um sehr mehr freut es mich, dass es eingetrudelt ist. Die 13 Songs sind eine Mischung aus traditioneller Country Music, Country Rock und Southern Rock. Als Anspieltip empfehle ich „Lay Down And Rock Me“ und „Message From Elvis“.”
"Truckers Finest-Bikers Best" is the latest country/western CD from J.R. Leonard. It’s an album recorded with the mindset of the free-living American west. You will find good ole' fashioned country songs, western ballads and some more edgy rock tunes as well. In "Darlene From San Antone" J.R. sings a love story in a catchy, honky-tonk, gotta-dance fashion. Then he changes the pace with tracks like "Message From Elvis,” a slow moving and bluesy country song. He shows us his edgier side with "Lay Down and Rock Me," a gritty rock song played almost in ZZ Top style. J.R. Leonard’s "Truckers Finest-Bikers Best" CD should have something for everyone; whether you are a fan of Jerry Jeff Walker and Johnny Cash, or prefer a more modern and mainstream approach to country music.
“Well naturally being from Canada I just had to check out "Canadian Rose", and I wasn't disappointed. Made me pop open my last cold can of Canada Dry.”
“Wonderful vocals and old-style pure country in CANADIAN ROSE. Great song!”
“great country music here!! enjoyed "canadian rose" and "darlene from san antone".”
