COVERS marks a sea change for Kimmie Rhodes. For the first time, the songwritersâ€™ songwriter, puts down her pen to devote an entire album to the songs of other writers, whose music has provided key milestones during Kimmieâ€™s acclaimed performing and recording career, and her personal life. Rhodesâ€™ first studio adventure since the passing of long-time partner and collaborator Joe Gracey in 2011, Kimmie draws deep from a wide range of catalogues – Thiele and Weiss, Lennon-McCartney, Jagger/Richards, Jimmy Reed, Mark Knopfler, Dylan, Bono, Tom Petty, Leon Russell, Neil Young and Tom Waits, and channels close friends Townes Van Zandt and Rodney Crowell; telling each story in that clear, soaring songbird voice that takes ownership of every composition. Embellishing the voice is a dream team of pickers including son/collaborator Gabriel Rhodes, multiple Handy Award winner Marcia Ball, singer-songwriter-author Rodney Crowell, songwriter and performer Bill Carter, Delbert McClinton, daughter Jolie Goodnight, guitar hotshot David Holt (Joe Ely), singer-songwriter/producer Gary Nicholson, pedal steel ninja Tommy Spurlock, fiddler Richard Bowden (Joe Ely), Glenn Fukunaga (Joe Ely), Mike Thompson (The Eagles) and Brian Standefer (Alejandro Escovedo). The chemistry is explosive, and the music, perfect for all tastes. Whatâ€™s your pleasure? Vintage pop from the Great American Songbook? â€˜What a Wonderful Worldâ€™.
