Good ol' boy Fletcher lives deep in the heart of Texas, in a place called Red Oak, and his credits as a purveyor of Texas Cowboy country music are many, including working with such luminaries as Charlie Daniels. I have to confess that for every technically good country singer I hear, there are hundreds who don't have the vocal power, or the vocal accuracy, or both, to make for an enjoyable listen. Sadly Fletcher's voice is to my mind one of the hundreds; he's off the melody line more than he's on, he can't hit the top notes and he sounds like he's suffering from terminal laryngitis. But hey, but what do I know? According to his publicity he's been nominated for loads of awards. Did I say that the guitars, fiddle and banjo are pretty good on 'Trails To Heaven'? Perhaps Charlie should've been doing the singing. . .
