Lightning Rod Records assembled a wide variety of artists to record covers of country music supergroup Alabama’s hits and lesser-known album cuts. The result is High Cotton, and it’s not your everyday cookie cutter, Music Row tribute album. Artists ranging from legendary gospel blues group Blind Boys of Alabama to gritty Memphis rockers Lucero to country soul shouter JD McPherson put their unique spin on the Alabama repertoire.

“They wrote songs that made a lasting impression on the Southland. If that’s all my music could do, I’d be proud to have done it.”
– Ketch Secor, Old Crow Medicine show in American Songwriter Magazine
