Big Shots is Number 6 for October on the Freeform American Roots Chart!
"Swinney has outdone himself this time. Biting comments on the world, packed in remarkable songs."
- Theo Oldenburg, Radio Winschoten / HOLLAND
"This CD is hypnotizing! Great bitter-sweet picture of the U.S.A."
- Lord Litter, Radio Marabu / GERMANY
"An ESSENTIAL songwriter. Big Shots is fresh air in a too often polluted atmosphere. When we can hear an American voice like Swinney's, we can hope he is not alone in your country, that maybe he is a kind of expression of a kind of silent minority or majority"
- Michael Penard, Radio ISA / FRANCE
"A TRULY gripping songwriter with the whip-smart social and political commentary of a Steve Earle, the literary and descriptive qualities of one John Prine, with a bit of Kris Kristofferson's gruffness. Swinney joins the ranks of the afformentioned - and does so with singularity and flair. 100% Guaranteed!."
- Miles of Music / Los Angeles, California
