Randy Kohrs - I'm Torn Review
by Sherrill Fulghum
This Iowa farm boy learned about hard work from an early age; as a result, he is happy to be playing music any chance he gets whether it be in a dive, on a grand stage or somewhere in between. Randy Kohrs has an auto collision repair business to fall back on if times get rough. After appearing on stage at the Grand Ole Opry; playing with The Whites, Hank Williams III, Tome T. Hall, continental Divide, Holly Dunn, and Jerry Reed; and appearing on some 500 albums finding work is not an issue an longer.
Kohrs latest album – his fourth solo album – is a collection of eleven songs of good old fashioned mountain bluegrass music. Multi-instrumentalist Kohrs wrote many of the songs that appear on the album.
Kohrs set the mood for the album with the opening and title track I'm Torn – a fast paced ho-down piece. The album also contains the obligatory gospel song Hurry Back Jesus and includes a good old fashioned tear jerker duet with country music legend Dolly Parton.
I'm Torn is a mountain music lover's delight. When Kohrs made the album he wanted to create an album that would span the generations appealing to the teens while not upsetting the older generations who help keep the traditions alive. Kohrs's music can easily fit alongside Bill Monroe, Flatt and Scruggs, or Ricky Skaggs.
