In the same year, he launched his self-titled debut, which co-produced by Travis, which included the honky-tonker I’m Living Up to Her Low Expectations and the rowdy Too Much Fun.
“If you want to do it right, do it like old George Jones … If you came to twang town just for the money, then pack it up, son, get out of my country,” he proclaimed.
