And what's not to like? Dirty country blues, country sway, ballads, sunny syncopation, foot stompin' foot drum, slide guitar, finger picked frets, with a who's who of guest appearances from Natalie Maines, Sarah Jarosz, Noam Pikelny, Eamon McLoughlin, and Jano Rix.
Fast on the heels of the CD release is this video, featuring Zach and Caitlin performing 'Stopgap Woman Blues'. So grab your cat, dog, significant other, whatever's handy, and turn it up!
