Label: Blue Note Records
“I’ve burned up 7 lives and I’ve used up all my charms
I took the long way home just to end up in your arms”
The quote is from the the opening track “A Feather’s Not A Bird”, and it pretty much sums up what this album is all about. Loving, getting burned, escaping, and coming home. Wherever home might be (most likely in Tennessee). Overall The River & The Thread is grand and powerful, and exactly what I want in a country album from 2014.
