“album full of treasures” – The Rock Pit


A conflagration of influences and invention, confidence and ambition, Bless Your Heart captures a vast, panoramic scope throughout a baker’s dozen of modern rock.  Ragged and stomping.  Heady and frayed.  Soaring and scorching.  Generational and genteel.  West Coast scenes and Gulf Coast shores.  Gateways of the Midwest and swamplands of Florida.  Wyoming’s Big Sky.  New York’s Big Apple.  Chicago’s Broad Shoulders.

Over a week’s time, they recorded 13 songs at the legendary Muscle Shoals Sound Studio on 2-inch tape, just as they did with Down to The River.  In addition to the time in Muscle Shoals, Bless Your Heart saw additional tracking in Memphis and St. Louis.  Within the eclectic repertoire are the familiar: stacks of guitars; electric, acoustic, and slide; a throttling, percussive rhythm section.  And the fresh:  Bassist and singer Berry Duane Oakley’s ABB vocal debut on his original song (“The Doctor’s Daughter”); Allman’s baritone vocal channeling Johnny Cash (“Much Obliged”); Betts extending the legendary family legacy of incendiary instrumentals (“Savannah’s Dream”).  They tapped friends, as well, such as Jimmy Hall, Shannon McNally, Art Edmaiston, Susan Marshall, and Reba Russell for guest contributions.  Then, emerged with an undeniable achievement of an album (what sophomore jinx?) worthy of its winking, unabashedly Southern title.

“I think we definitely challenged ourselves, pushed ourselves artistically, and widened the spectrum on all levels.  We wanted something that was a little more sweeping.  A deeper experience,” says Betts.

Says Allman, “I hope what people hear on Bless Your Heart is a band that’s having a love affair with being a band.”
