“Alecia Nugent’s Surprising New Album “THE OLD SIDE OF TOWN” By Sandy Zimmerman

I enjoyed Alecia Nugent’s new album because the songs had such feeling and each was different.

With 9 songs and one song performed in two different versions, Alecia Nugent’s new album is a wonderful mix of songs about life, love and heartbreak. Each song has its own story with lyrics so real you know how the person feels and can identify with them. This is reality in music!

Nugent carries on the traditions of country music with sad songs but also brings humor to her repertoire. She included something for everyone with her new collection of Bluegrass music, country and Americana songs.

From the time she was 15 years old, Nugent appeared in her dad’s band beginning a successful career. He was her mentor, friend and she performed with him and blossomed into singing Bluegrass hits on Rounder Records (2000’s).

Those years brought Nugent awards and were filled with her performing, acting as IBMA Award Presenter three times, touring, and she even appearing on the Grand Ole Opry 71 times!  

The list of songs in her new album will surprise and please followers and new fans:

1.) The Old Side of Town

2.) I Might Have One Too

3.) They Don’t Make ‘em Like My Daddy Anymore

4.) Way Too Young for Wings

5.) Tell Ft. Worth I said Hello

6.) The Other Woman

7.) Too Bad You’re No Good

8.) Sad Song

9.) I Thought He’d Never Leave


The Old Side of Town is a contrast between a man who succeeded and moved away while his former friends say, “We miss you on the old side of town.” Although they watch newspaper stories about him, life is still the same for them. Whatever the reason for moving, a person leaves their friends and family.



“They Don’t Make ‘em Like My

Daddy Anymore” brings back Nugent’s happy times with her dad and there are two versions of this song.

“Two Bad You’re No Good” is an amusing song about a man who smiles like an angel while he lies to you! 

“I Thought He’d Never Leave” was inspired by a comment and Nugent thought it sounded like the name of a song.  www.alecianugent.com
