Formerly of the Civil Wars, John Paul White makes a solo record that seems to be designed to appeal to all of the Wars' fans, as opposed to Joy Williams' record, which alienated a lot of them. He flies through country, bluesy rock, Americana, and folk-rock, and sounds pretty good on all of them, but sometimes descends into the clichés of each of these genres, and his lyricism is always competent but is never as memorable as you'd hope for this sort of project.
John Paul White's new record since he left The Civil Wars is just as mediocre as his counterpart Joy Williams' newest solo record. They were less mediocre, when they were together.

All in all, extremely cliche record.
