Editors’ Notes William Clark Green sings his straight-forward lyrics with a touch of grizzled melancholy, sounding like a Texas Jeff Tweedy as he meticulously narrates a series of on-again-off-again small-town relationships. Whether the characters are in love (as on the redemptive, twangy “Hey Sarah”) or out of it (see the resigned “Fool Me Once”), Green's warm band lends their stories trad-country urgency. And where "Creek Don't Rise" brings couples counseling to a fiddle-heavy barn dance, upbeat rocker "Sticks and Stones" celebrates a reunion between estranged lovers with an even rowdier bash.
