Gary Stewart: Steppin 'Out

John Morthland, Creem, May 1976

WHAT MOST attracted rock fans to Gary Stewart's first album was his raw, exuberant singing, and the subsequent suspicion that he was really a closet rocker. But while he obviously does have an affinity for rock, this album demonstrates that he is a country singer by choice, not by accident of geography, and that he is also a staunch country music fan.
