Lovett's certainly pulled out some great names to help this go 'round: Jerry Douglas, Sam Bush, Guy Clark, Matt Rollings, Bela Fleck, Stuart Duncan, Sweet Pea Atkinson, and Francine Reed, just to name a few. The songs roll along and flow together meticulously - much like the man who put it all together. Lovett's strength has always been his ability to "everyman" up the tunes; from the lyrics to the melodies, there's nothing too tricky going on, but it's supreme song craftmanship at work. A couple of these tunes - most notably "All Downhill" and "Up In Indiana" stack up to anything he's done, and the rest of them are very well done, too.
