"Swampy and funky every whichaway. This former Nashville Star competitor has a CMT reality TV show with Ted Nugent in the can, is playing the criminal in Jake Owen's hit "Tell Me" video and has twice headlined shows in Europe. Will somebody do the right thing and give this guy the major-label contract he deserves?"

Robert K. Oermann Review:
"Sage Keffer is the DisCovery Award winner today. Some major label should give him a contract, take the eight sides on Rules of the Game as is and give him and his most worthy producer Matt Rovey a bunch of money to add four more tracks. Take my word for it, this guy has a got a boatload of talent to back up his good looks.
SAGE KEFFER/I Said I Love You (www.sagekeffer.com) I first encountered this guy in Kansas City when I was on the road judging for Nashville Star. I told him Id be interested in hearing more from him. Guess what? Hes moved to Nashville and made a CD. Titled Rules of the Game, it is simply splendid, way better than most major-label products. As I remembered, he is a singer with immense heart. It turns out that hes a heck of a song selector, too. Every track here is a little gem, but his performance on this deliciously melodic toe-tapper is especially swell. The production carries you along like a perfect wave. Also check out his ballad showcase All I Want, his reworking of the 1934 swing chestnut Ill String Along with You and his tender cover of Neil Diamonds Hello Again."
