James McMurtry's fourth album of new material concerns itself with change. Showing a maturity that doesn't show itself much in the roots rock genre, It Had to Happen winds its way through many stories set to music. Sixty Acres deals with inheritance, while No More Buffalo, a standout cut, dwells on both natural and personal destruction. Tastefully done, McMurtry and his fellow travelers offer fine music done maturely. In 2005, McMurtry released his first studio album in three years. Childish Things again received high critical praise, winning the song and album of the year at the 5th Annual Americana Music Awards in Nashville, Tennessee. The album was perhaps McMurtry at his most political, as his working-class anthem We Can't Make It Here included direct criticism of George W. Bush, the Iraq War, and Wal-Mart. The music critic Robert Christgau ranked We Can't Make It Here as the best song of the 2000s. McMurtry released his follow-up album to Childish Things in April 2. It Had to Happen. Sugar Hill.

He was promoting his first album which had received accolades in the alternative press, and though the crowd was very thin, he played as if he were playing for thousands. I bought that album on cassette and still have it, but I hadn't thought much about him until recently when a friend to whom I had introduced McMurtry's music brought out a stack of his newer CDs for me to hear. Among those was It Had To Happen. When I first put it on, I was pleased but not overwhelmed. Critic Score. Based on 1 review. User Score. New Album Releases. Tom Misch & Yussef Dayes.
