Show Info

Inspired by everyone from Gram Parsons to W.C. Handy, Tumbleweed Highway brings a distinctly Mississippi sound with them wherever they play. There’s a hearty dose of Memphis shuffle, a little Muscle Shoals boogie-woogie, and at the delta, a good liberal sprinkling of creole zydeco powder. Though the inspiration is the diminutive Chenango River, not the Big Muddy, it’s still river music, after all: laid back, welcoming, a little bit wistful. You can’t step in the same river twice, after all. Playing mostly original songs penned by band leader Nate Gross, Tumbleweed Highway is partial to songs about tarnished love, barroom travails and triumphs, truckin,’ and good drinking weather. The verses are apt to make you think, and the choruses tend to soar with beery optimism, and when the lines are all sung, the Telecaster and pedal steel strings heat up fast.
