Cahlaen Morrison & Country Hammer is now Western Centuries! You can find their latest album, Songs from the Deluge, here.

The Flower of Muscle Shoals, the debut full-length album from Cahalen Morrison & Country Hammer, is a sparkling country gem from front to back. After releasing several recordings as part of acclaimed old-time duo Cahalen Morrison & Eli West, Morrison has further embraced the country music that shaped his youth. While offering up the comforting sounds of country and western's roots, the album plays more like a new classic than a dusty Nashville relic; glimmers of influence from the days of Hank Williams all the way to Dwight Yoakam pepper the album's 12 tracks. Morrison's commanding vocals steer listeners through the expansive landscape of his songwriting, marked by the subtle, yet striking truths he conveys with poetic ease. The Flower of Muscle Shoals lilts and swings through graceful arrangements of guitars, pedal steel, fiddle, bass and percussion, with a rich texture and genuine approach that is sure to rouse any fan of country and old-time music.

 

"The Flower of Muscle Shoals is a fabulous interpretation of a classic sound, polished off with Cahalen's own quirks, diversity and twists. And it reminds us of just where we came from as much as it reminds him of New Mexico." -Vickye Fisher, For the Country Record
