Mark Wayne Glasmire has such a smooth, polished, natural, and completely engaging, country tenor voice (not unlike James Taylor's), it's a wonder he's not a staple of Country or Adult Contemporary radio. A singer/songwriter who flashes a scalpel-like precision in his song craft (which also reflects his grounding in contemporary folk), his new CD, "Life Goes On," only furthers the storied – if largely unheralded, talents of this veteran performer. Utilizing a top-notch Nashville supporting ensemble, "Life Goes On" is filled with moving vignettes rich with utterly flawless flourishes of mandolin, fiddle, dobro-slide guitar, and Glasmire's own signature and virtuoso guitar playing. Songs like "Everything Is Gonna Be Alright," or "You Opened My Eyes," and lead track, "True Love Knows," resonate with heartfelt narratives and melodies that are both immediate and timeless. In fact, the 12-song CD is filled with songs that stand out as singular and noteworthy. And as he sings on the CD's title track "Life Goes On," "we should've seen it coming…" so too should music fans see the day when Mark Wayne Glasmire's name ranks with contemporaries like James Taylor, Vince Gill, and Rodney Crowell as substantive American artists.
