Sam Buck Rosen is a openly gay bro-country singer-songwriter and painter from a small town in Massachusetts. While I have a relatively limited knowledge of country music, I did grow up in a small Southern town so I went through a brief* Corey Smith phase. Buck’s brand of hometown blues reminds me a lot of Smith. His songwriting is his strength. With his latest two releases “Faces” and “Tuesday Night Lights,” he paints a picture of youth and promiscuity that you cannot help but relate to.
