On the new album, Childers has some help. Sturgill Simpson produced Purgatory, and David Ferguson, who was Johnny Cash’s engineer, helps out. But Childer’s songs and his voice speak for themselves on the autobiographical concept album that traces a young man’s growth into an adult.
Childers grew up in eastern Kentucky. And you may hear some of the Appalachian Mountains sound in his music. It’s great stuff, and he should be getting a lot more attention soon. Rolling Stone already has listed him as one of the 10 New Country Artists You Need to Know.
But it is the music that counts. One of the tracks on the album is “Whitehouse Road.” Check it out.
