“The Reddest Rose” is a dobro-dusted cut that has Caudle’s country heroes’ influences branded all over it. A little Gram Parsons melancholy, a shade Merle Haggard roughness with an ear for melody reminiscent of Lyle Lovett.
There’s a river I see that runs beside me, and I long to feel it’s water start to cool. Seems like what I run to the quickest, only leaves me blue.” Caudle sings in his road weary baritone in a away you know there’s truth in it.
“The Reddest Rose” is from the album ‘Carolina Ghost’, out Feb. 26 on This Is American Music label. Pre-order here.
Caudle says of ‘Carolina Ghost’:
”This record is all about making life changes and coming home,” says Caudle, who co-produced Carolina Ghost with longtime collaborator Jon Ashley (Avett Brothers, Dawes, Band of Horses). “I kicked booze about a year and a half ago and moved back to North Carolina and fell in love. So it all feels like a new start, really.”
