“Good With God”, the new song from the forthcoming Old 97’s album, Graveyard Whistling is definitely livening up the afternoons on XRT so far this year.
It’s a classic country pedal to the medal rocker. A speed limit breaking trip back to the band’s earlier days. What sets it apart is a strong vocal from Brandi Carlisle as the voice of God who puts the self satisfied narrator, (Rhett Miller), in his place. Probably not a good idea to mess with this God.
The album, Old 97’s 11th, was recorded in the same Texas studio where the band recorded it’s debut a couple decades ago.
Graveyard Whistling is due out February 24th via ATO Records.
In case you haven’t heard it on my show, here it is with a speeding van!
