What the critics are saying about A Good Place…
"Doug Bruce is an asset to the Aussie community of country music. His latest album, A Good Place, is intrinsically ‘country’, with rich vocals, crying pedal steel, and narratives about life and love that would match any Alan Jackson album song-for-song". - Rosie Adsett, Country Update
"A Good Place is the title of the new album for Doug Bruce and it’s where you will find yourself after one listen to this excellent release." - Darryl Kirkup, Capital News
"Well worth checking out if you favour contemporary country with a traditional bent along the lines of Strait, Jackson, Paisley etc." - Duncan Warwick, Country Music People
"The production is top quality, offering sounds that are both contemporary, yet at the same time feeling mainstream." - Alan Perkins, UpCountry
"Like George Strait, Bruce is something of a neo-traditionalist, with a catchy commercial sound, but never straying too far from his Texas honkytonk and swing roots." - Greg Reilly, Sunday Herald Sun
