Somewhere between an EP and an album, Cauthen's new seven-track collection, 'Have Mercy,' is a stunning showcase of the pure power of truth and love. Building off the success of 'My Gospel,' the Texas troubadour's breakout debut, 'Have Mercy' pushes Cauthen's songwriting to new heights as he searches for common ground and peace of mind in an increasingly polarized world. Fueled by nearly two straight years of personal and artistic growth on the road, the songs reflect a newfound maturity and creative self-assurance. Cauthen's rich, velvety baritone is still very much the centerpiece here, but it's the craftsmanship that dazzles more than anything. 'Have Mercy' is the work of an artist who's turned his life over to the music, body and soul, and the rewards for his devotion are undeniably on display throughout the record.
This is a wonderful album. It is personal, senitive, and caring. I love to here Sturgill sing, and wish had found him earlier. I thsnk wnku for playing local artists. I lived in Jackson Ky. And know how sad the drugs have made so many hometowns. Keep singing you are great. carolfaulkner
The music this band is making is exactly the kind I want to find people to play like. The riffs are just such good waves to surf and the rythems are so on point. I cant imagine a better patchwork of notes and time. the perfect place to get lost!!! monolith85
