Slaughters, Kentucky native Chris Knight burns a new path for others to follow on his sixth recording, Heart of Stone.
Starting the disc in true, firebrand fashion, Knight delivers an ode to the weary, road-bound traveler on the rousing, "Home Sick Gypsy." Taking a page from the Waylon Jennings songbook, Knight inspires bookworms and workingpeople alike on the take-no-prisoners, country-rock anthem, "Hell Ain’t Half Full."
Full of driven characters fallen on hard times, Heart of Stone burrows deep into the soul, especially on the title track and the lover’s lament, "Something to Keep Me Going." An uncompromising artist in the mold of music’s most lauded heartland rockers, Chris Knight further benefits from the expert support of producer Dan Baird on the penetrating roots-flavored ear candy, Heart of Stone.
Heart of Stone is out now on Red Distribution.
