Limited Edition 180g Double Vinyl with Gatefold Jacket & Special Etching on Side 4!
Looking at life through the rearview mirror was the inspiration for John
Hiatt's album, The Open Road. The legendary songwriter's 19th studio album is
classic Hiatt, picking up the tempo and returning to rock following his previous
critically acclaimed Same Old Man. Backed by his touring band, (Kenny Blevins on
drums, Patrick O'Hearn on bass and Doug Lancio on guitars), the songs are
inspired by life on the road, without looking back. "All the other years, my
songs are about coming home," Hiatt says. But within these 11 new songs,
home is never the destination.
Hiatt has written songs covered by a multitude of artists in a wide variety of
genres including Bob Dylan, Rosanne Cash, Willie Nelson, Jewel and Bonnie Raitt,
who most famously recorded "Thing Called Love." On The Open Road he showcases
both his lyrical and musical talent with his blues driven, rock songs including
the title track and "Haulin'." Hiatt produced The Open Road himself after
recording with his band in his garage-turned-studio.
