Highlights of the show were "Fire on the Mountain," "Heard It in a Love Song," and "Can't You See." During the latter, Gray was backed up by the opening act, a mother and two daughter country group named Lucy Angel who were easy on the ears and even more easy on the eyes.

 Southern Rock returns, sort of. - By Ethan Hauser - Slate Magazine

As a result, Southern Rock Opera, the Truckers' fourth album (originally released in 2001, recently snatched up for wider distribution by the twangy boutique label Lost Highway), stands as an impressive and ambitious document steeped in the complexities of what Hood refers to as "the Southern Thing."
