Hard Working Americans is roots singer-songwriter Todd Snider, guitarist Neal Casal (Chris Robinson Brotherhood, Ryan Adams), bassist Dave Schools (Widespread Panic), keyboardist Chad Staehly (Great American Taxi) and drummer Duane Trucks (The Derek Trucks Band). The self-titled debut of this supergroup features eleven covers based on their namesake theme. The variety is vast; a sampling of some of the songs includes: “Stomp and Holler” (Hayes Carll); “Welfare Music” (the Bottle Rockets); “Blackland Farmer” (Frankie Miller); “Mr. President, Have Pity on the Working Man” (Randy Newman); “Down to the Well” (Kevin Gordon and Lucinda Williams); “Wrecking Ball” (Gillian Welch) and others. Hard Working Americans blends American music styles with a jam band aesthetic over a stellar set of handpicked tunes. – Written by JFelton
