    Really? Haven't been able to find it anywhere.

    The Daytrotter Sessions he did for this though is incredible.

    i give up on daytrotter. always seemed like you had to go through a bunch of loops to listen to stuff or something

    Yeah I'm not a member, but I love the sessions that are done by a lot of my favorite bands.

    This is damn good, on first listen. Country suits him well.

    It's really great. Definitely helps ease the sting of Augustana being no more.

    About to take off on a long drive. Do I listen to this first? Or the JEW record first? Haven't heard either in full yet.

    JEW first, this second.

    Honestly, I think I would like this album quite a bit more if The Secret Sisters weren't featured on so many tracks.

    Holy shit I had no idea this existed.

    Four Rings is definitely my favorite track on the album. But, I even like the Daytrotter version even more. Stripped down and without The Secret Sisters.

    The songs on this are fantastic but something about the arrangements and his voice doesn't quite click with me. I can almost see these songs working better with another artist.

    Man, "The Nightbird" is such a great song.

    "Enough For You" is another favorite so far

    Winter shows in Boston are always tricky... I'll keep an eye on tickets and make a decision closer to the date, I think.

    I actually have yet to listen to this album... Should do that soon.

    Damn nothing even near me. Hopefully some more are added.

    @quietwords you really should listen to this.

    This has become one of my favorite records of the year. Really great writing. He can seriously write a hook in any context..

    "Four Rings" might be my favorite track on the record. The daytrotter session version is ten times better, believe it or not.

    He's going on tour with Will Hoge. They're coming to Chattanooga and playing at the venue I actually built, so of course I'll be there.

    Has anyone seen one of his solo shows? He’s playing with Will Hoge next week downtown (@Gjpeace) and my wife and I are planning on going. Was curious if he has been playing any Augustana tracks, or if he is sticking to songs off of Dangerous Things?

    Something in your chemistry has changed Supporter

    I still pretty regularly listen to this cd, just love it. @airik625 did you end up seeing him with Will Hoge? I saw that tour and they were both really great, although there was maybe 30 people there so it made me a little sad haha.

    Yeah I don't understand...every time I've seen him/Augustana since like 2012 it's been a thin crowd. I don't know why. His music is great.
