“Black Water”

“Clinch Mountain Hills” (a tribute to the Stanley Brothers)

“I hear Carter Stanley & Larry Sparks influences here. There’s also an unmistakable Jamey Johnson, Waylon-esque quality to this stuff, and I believe either of those titans would have been right at home with these great songs.” — Larry Cordle
