Feller & Hill have released a single today, Government Blues, a new song from Dixie and Tom T. Hall, in advance of their next album, expected sometime in 2014.
Tom Feller tells us that the Halls sent them the song a few weeks ago, and asked if they thought they could do a quick turnaround and get something out before the holidays. Well… the boys buckled down and recorded, mixed, and mastered it in just two weeks! I guess it helps when you have your own studio.
Government Blues hearkens back to the Depression Era songs popular in the 1930s, but I suspect that Miss Dixie and Tom T. mean to imply a bit about today’s economic times as well.
