[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Cory Branan[/lastfm] has spent the better part of the past six years since the release of 12 Songs, with a guitar slung over his shoulder, humping it from town to town– classic troubadour style. Now, after racking up more miles than even Greyhound will allow on an ol’ dog, Cory is back with a new collection of stories. Mutt reflects the combination of sounds from Branan’s many homes, Mississippi, Memphis, now Nashville, and of course, every other town with a Waffle House he’s played. Mutt boasts guest appearances by [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Luther Dickenson[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Jon Snodgrass[/lastfm], and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Amanda Shires[/lastfm], among others. All told, if Mutt is a rock and roll reflection of American stories laid out before us, things ain’t that bad. Stream the full album inside.
