Mike released his third CD The Jukebox In Your Heart in May 2010. It was produced by Jesse Dayton, at Willie Nelson's Pedernales Studios. The sound is a bit West Coast, a bit Texas and is the perfect counterpoint to anything Nashville’s got going at the moment.
The real standout here is the song-craftmanship. Dig just a little deeper than the hardcore honky-tonk sound and Stinson relates, with startling accuracy, tales of loves lost, bitterness and how it feels to be, whether literally or existentially, the outsider. If you’ve lived at all “I Will Live To Drink Again” will strike chords of recognition, while on “Stop The Bar, I’m Getting Off” he laments, “Watching dreams go passing by, headed for some other guy.” “Square With The World,” “No One Left To Drink With” and “Slip My Mind” are also exceptional tracks.
