Curtis Wright

by Curtis Wright

Curtis Wright weaves layers of that warm, Middle America sound to tell stories of faith, family, love, and the bruises that go along with them, and he tells them with humor and disarming honesty.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes

Curtis Wright’s whiskey-seasoned voice and country road storytelling never let go on this long-awaited solo album. His decades of work as a songwriter and backup singer yield an album full of evocative tunes that make you fall in
love with the place they sing about: the maze of roads, taverns, and churches of the American heartland.
An honest sense of yearning fuels the entire work. On the rst hit single, “Going Through Carolina” - an easy going on-the-road ballad - Wright’s longing looks to the past, basking in days gone by, but it doesn’t stay there long. The poignant back porch hymn “I Will Someday,” points that same nagging hunger at Wright’s most sacred hope for the future: a home with his God.
But as heartfelt and personal as some of these songs are, Wright doesn’t keep his hand on his heart the whole time. Some tunes he delivers with a hell of a grin. “Tunnel Tunnel,” with it’s old-as-the-hills sound, is about a hard-fought shot at breaking out of prison, and the bluesy “Dixie Chicken” is a classic young man’s tale of love and mischief.
Throughout the album, Wright’s songs have the power to take you places: from your mother’s prayerful bedside when you were a child to a lonesome night of drinking in a just-emptied house. But where they take you isn’t the thing. The thing is that wherever they wander, they have a knack for telling the truth.
