Grayson Capps performs “Highway 42”

Brooklyn label The Royal Potato Family says “Grayson is among the finest of the modern Southern troubadours — in a league with James McMurtry, Ryan Bingham and Jason Isbell among others.  For this latest recording, he’s delivered his strongest songs yet, ranging from Gospel-inflected country soul (‘Highway 42,’ ‘Yes You Are’) to terse southern rock (‘No Definitions,’ ‘Paris, France’) to covers of ‘Annie’s Lover’ by Taj Mahal and ‘Jane’s Alley Blues’ by Richard Rabbit Brown (originally recorded on the Anthology of American Folk Music).”
