Students from across the nation have descended upon the Alabama Gulf Coast for their annual enjoyment the region’s surf and sun. They shouldn’t leave without a visit to The Flora-Bama, especially while Wes Loper is in town. Even though this Southeastern country legend has relocated to Nashville, Loper’s heart remains on the Gulf Coast. In fact, Loper uses the warm months of the year to return to the area and perform for his local fans.
Loper has an extensive catalog of original music. 2015’s “Natural” is the artist’s latest release, a skillful balance of classic and contemporary country. The album’s title track is a heartfelt country ballad featuring equal parts of twang and emotion. “Day Late and a Dollar Short” provides contrast with a backwoods arrangement featuring beachside lyrics in tradition of Jimmy Buffett or Zac Brown Band.
