NO WAY OUT is the latest release by The Ozark Mountain Daredevils and reflects the uncertainty so many are feeling in these unusual times. What follows is the story on how the song was conceived and recorded by the song’s writer, and co-founding member of the band, John Dillon.

"No Way Out was written in one quick session. The melody, the riff, and all the lyrics except for the last verse, were done in less than one hour. I realized the song could come off as dark and perhaps negative to some listeners, so we waited to record the song until the third verse appeared a few weeks later.

When I was finished, I realized the third verse really says it all: with a little acceptance and forgiveness, a little quiet reflection, and yes, a little bok choy, one can find a way to survive and win. 

The band learned the song in the studio while recording. We set up in a circle, with amps miked and pointed toward the middle. The basic track and lead vocal went down at once in real time. We nailed it on the third take."


The Ozark Mountain Daredevils began their musical journey in 1971. Their self-titled first album on A&M Records contained the hit single, "If You Wanna Get to Heaven." Their second album,It'll Shine When it Shines gave the listening world the perennial hit "Jackie Blue. Produced by world renown producers Glyn Johns and David Anderle, these first two records established the Daredevils as an important voice in the history of American music. Both "Heaven" and "Jackie Blue" are still played across all media formats to this day, all over the world.
