James Scott Bullard – Shooter’s Lounge, Hickory
After a brief stint in rehab several years ago, James Scott Bullard declared himself substance-free, yet it took him longer to accept responsibility for the rest of his life’s decisions. That process led to fan-favorite lovelorn songs from his previous albums. Full Tilt Boogie jumps forward to where Bullard is now, owning his bad choices and sometimes reveling in them, while not giving up vices altogether, as his string of exes will attest. Bullard’s honesty about his flaws endears him to his fans, who find broken pieces of themselves in the lyrics.
