Free Download: Levi Lowrey — “Picket Fences”

Juli Thanki | January 30th, 2014

Levi Lowrey is a busy guy this winter. In addition to preparing for the forthcoming release of his self-titled album, he’s on the road with the Zac Brown Band, and also recently announced several tour dates with fellow Southern Ground artist Clay Cook. A fine singer-songwriter (he co-wrote Zac Brown Band hit “Colder Weather,” and had a hand in all but one of the songs on Levi Lowrey), Lowrey’s also a solid fiddle player — not that you’d expect anything less from the great-great-grandson of Gid Tanner. His new album is bursting with a wide variety of sounds, from moving ballad “Before the Hymnal Died” to a greasy, Southern rock cover of Black Sabbath’s “War Pigs.”

Though Levi Lowrey, which features guest appearances from Cook, Mac McAnally, and Oliver Wood, doesn’t come out until February 25, here’s the opening track, “Picket Fences,” to tide you over.
