However, the two songs “Even up the Score” and “Standing in the Rain” are by Charlie Daniels Band keyboardist Joel “Taz” DiGregorio.[1] It was released on May 30, 2000 courtesy of Blue Hat Records.[2]

Source Rating
AllMusic 4/5 stars[3]

Road Dogs received four stars out of five from Allmusic.[3] Reviewer Michael B. Smith concludes that "This is one old dog [Charlie Daniels] who isn't even considering curling up on the porch and letting life pass him by. He's rockin', but it's not in a rocking chair, it's behind a Gibson guitar."[3]
