Southern rock of the Allman Brothers Band and Hank Williams Jr.’s
whiskey-soaked howl.” Marvel also shares the pen with Chris Stapleton on
three of the album’s tracks, including “Untangle My Mind,” “Tryin’ Not
To Love You” and “Closer To Hell.” To close out the album, Jamey Johnson
lends his vocals to “Drinkin’ My Baby Goodbye”, a track penned by
Country legend Charlie Daniels.
