"Many people can craft sad and morose tales that draw the listener in, but few can do that and make them sound so good, the way Leaphart does here."
“ "Mac Leaphart’s solo record, Line. Rope. Etc., is a songwriting tour-de-force, with tunes that draw from the best of the country-folk tradition (think Kristofferson, John Prine, Gram Parsons), and a few times allows himself to slip into the comfortable sweet spot between Southern rock n’ roll and pure honky-tonk bliss."”
““With his salty swagger, Mac Leaphart is the kind of artist who writes tunes that should be famous. Leaphart’s raspy tenor sells the hardscrabble scenes to the max.” - ”
““This guy may just single-handedly save country music. ””
"Charleston's own answer to Hayes Carll-'Line, Rope, Etc' one of the 10 best of the year."
““A rowdy set, that seems to meld Gram Parsons with the "Sticky Fingers" era Rolling Stones.””
