Chris Knight doesn’t like to say much. Won’t chat about his worldview or engage in conversations on his creative approach. For 14 years, 7 acclaimed albums and a hard-nosed career that’s been hailed as “where Cormac McCarthy meets Copperhead Road”, Knight has always let his music do most of the talking. His first album of new material in 4 years, Little Victories is a record of blunt honesty, elegiac truths, and the raw rural poetry of an artist who’s come into his own and intends to stay. And for a performer who’s been compared over the years to Cash, Prine, Earle, and Nebraska-era Springsteen, Knight now stands alone as a singer/songwriter that has carved his own idiosyncratic sound and sensibility out of the dirt road American dream. LIttle Victories not only sounds like a Chris Knight album, but the best Chris Knight album yet.
Produced by Lloyd Maines (Wilco, Richard Buckner, Joe Ely, and, yes, the Dixie Chicks), “A-Town Blues” is loose and live, baby. Pedal steel, guitars, and buckhouse bass—that’s it. No trickery or effects, just the finely honed chops of a band that’s been known to play 200+ dates in a year. They swing through a set of songs that reflect Wayne’s scorn for the soulless, pocketbook-driven sounds that ooze out of Nashville; songs that reminisce about old friends and family; songs that sing praises to the road and songs that rue the hazards of hooch.

through, you’ll find a new story, a new unique sound, and another piece of the puzzle. If music could put oil on canvas, American Wolf’s masterpiece would look similar to something out of the mind of Van Gogh. The third project released by American Wolf, Tales of Kamanakura is worth every step the band took to get here.
