'Ties of Blood and Affection' makes Routes & Branches Best of 2017!
"This is his lane, Pinnell's modus operandi. He lays out a thick and satisfying country groove and tops it with lyrics not typically found rebounding off the timbers and tables of your average roadside establishment. 'I Don't Believe' launches like a classic country trucking song punctuated with pedal steel and relentless shuffle. Then he launches into the chorus: I don't believe in a long black train / Or a lake of fire / Or a 40 day rain / But I believe we can all be free / And I know that if something's wrong / Then it's gotta be me".
