The album is intimate and autobiographical, the music earnest and ornate, which is why Hood made this a solo record instead of presenting it to the Truckers, and why he's touring playing smaller rooms. "If I made it a Trucker record, these songs would be out there competing with big rock songs in a great big room with people who came to hear big rock songs," he says. "I kind of wanted this to be a more slowed-down type of thing. There's stories that come with some of them. I just wanted it to be a very differently paced experience than what the Truckers' show is."
