This Kentucky-bred, Nashville-based honky-tonk hero makes country music rooted in the lean, mean traditions of Merle and Waylon, but follows his own muse. The title of 'Metamodern Sounds in Country Music' bows to Ray Charles, while the lyrics to lead track 'Turtles All the Way Down' nods to psychedelic drug chronicler Rick Strassman. LP with Download.
