No Justice — America’s Son


Country

Louis Fowler
When something really catches my ear, I tend to imagine it in the closing credits of a movie, and then I work backward, formulating a plot and actors. “Never Gonna Be Enough,” the opening track on Red Dirt rockers No Justice’s latest, America's Son, had me doing that within 10 seconds.
