Caleb Caudle To Release New Album ‘Better Hurry Up’ This Spring

It’s always welcome news around Casa Twang when our friend Caleb Caudle readies a new work.

This time around Caudle set up camp at the historic Johnny Cash’s log cabin (yes, the one of the famed ostrich attack ) on Old Hickory Lake in Hendersonville, TN. with some friends like John Jackson of the Jayhawks (producer), and guest vocalists include Courtney Marie Andrews, Elizabeth Cook, Gary Louris, and John Paul White,
to create an “earthy, funky sound’ for his new album.

Of recording ‘Better Hurry Up’ at the log cabin Caudle says “It feels like you’re in the shadow of giants. None of us wore headphones,” Caudle says. “It was just like we were doing it for the love of music – it didn’t feel like we were making a record. It felt like I was playing with an incredible group of musicians and making art.”

A well as the stellar list of artists lending their vocals, musicians appearing on ‘Better Hurry Up’ includes Mickey Raphael on harmonica (Willie Nelson), Dennis Crouch on bass (Elton John, Leon Russell), Fred Eltringham on drums (Willie Nelson, Sheryl Crow), Russ Pahl on pedal steel (Kacey Musgraves, Dan Auerbach), Laur Joamets on guitar (Sturgill Simpson, Drivin’ N Cryin’), and, on keyboards, Pat Sansone (Wilco) and Rhett Huffman (American Aquarium). Guest vocalists include Cook, White, Andrews and one of Jackson’s fellow Jayhawks, Gary Louris. Caudle wrote all 11 songs on the album, with the exception of “Regular Riot,” a co-write with Natalie Hemby of The Highwomen.

‘Better Hurry Up’ will be released on April 3rd. Pre-order here.
