WC Edgar is a master at bringing new life to old country music tropes. In "Mirrors Don't Lie" he gives us the quintessential lost-love song, loaded with good hooks and heartfelt lyrics, while the title song, "Alcohol of Fame," follows the old country tradition of personifying booze, making Jim Beam and Jack Daniels people, old and best friends of the singer. If George Jones was alive today, he'd be in the studio right now, cutting his own cover of this song.
