His fourth album on his fourth record label (RCA), Renegade Picker was more fantastic country music from the much underrated Steve Young. It featured music in both the traditional country style and a harder-edged 'outlaw country' style, with covers including Merle Haggard's "I Can't Be Myself", Guy Clark's "Broken Hearted People" and J.D. Loudermilk's "Tobacco Road". Also featured a new, more rock-styled recording of his own "Lonesome, On'ry And Mean" (originally on Seven Bridges Road). As always, it was his stunning voice that dominated the record, though with some considerable assistance from session musicians including Johnny Gimble (fiddle/mandolin), Buddy Emmons (steel guitar), Terry McMillan (harmonica), Bobby Wood (keyboards), Mike Leech (bass), Karl Himmel (drums), and guitarists Jerry Shook, Dale Sellars and Mac Gayden.
