“SAMMY SADLER – New Single “Thinking About Mexico” —Sammy Sadler is still best known as the survivor of the 1989 Music Row assault that murdered Cash Box chart manager Kevin Hughes (convicted Richard “Tony” D’Antonio died in prison last year). His latest floats on bobbing steel notes and echoey mariachi horns and features the strongest singing of his career to date. Solid. Listenable.”
Robert K. Oermann


“The voice of Sammy Sadler is one of those pleasant things —- like a cool chill on an autumn morning or the taste butter on a warm piece of toast. For his new album, he and his veteran producer have assembled a strong collection of songs that entertain the listener and likewise are showcase for his vocals. “I Wanna Be Loved By You” which kicks off this set is proof of this. There’s no bells or whistles, just fine singing all along to a winning melody.”

“Sammy Sadler sounds as if he’s not singing for the money. The man is as casual as a cardigan, willfully optimistic, ultra tuneful and real warm.”

“The artist has an ear for finding a good song that does justice to his far-ranging vocals. Excellently produced by the artist and Chet Hinesley.”

Nashville Music Guide

“Sadler is also a honky-tonk music genius with a crystal clear voice touched by a warm, romantic tone, especially noticeable on the tune I’ll Always Have Denver.”

“Sammy Sadler’s Heart Shaped Like Texas reminds me of the warmth and honesty country-pop music had in the late ’70s and early ’80s, before megabucks and mega sales turned much of it into slick rock disguised as country. Plus, Mr.Sadler’s voice is so wonderfully reminiscent of Steve Wariner. When he sings “I’ll Always Have Denver,” a song composed by Mr. Wariner and Bill Anderson, it sounds like it was meant for him to croon.”
