"Musically, the album finds Caudle directing things slightly away from the traditional country sounds he's favored in the past. In its' place are more multi-faceted sounds that span a variety of styles and arrangements. The unfussy melodies are still a bit twangy but come across a bit softer around the edges and more soulful than some of his previous recordings have allowed. The musicianship is all first rate and befitting of the all-star cast he's assembled. Joshua Hedley's fiddle, Megan McCormick's electric guitar, and Brett Resnick's pedal steel don't overtake the songs, but rather subtly glide them to sweepingly inventive heights. There are also lush touches of cello and jazzy keyboard chords flowing in and out of the album tracks, adding even more of a rich sonic palette to the album tracks.
"Caleb Caudle's Crushed Coins is a quiet classic"
"Co-produced with Jon Ashley, known for his work with acts like Hiss Golden Messenger and the War on Drugs, Crushed Coins is a sonic tour de force, with cinematic arrangements and personal, narrative lyrics that show Caudle to be a worthy new voice in a long tradition of musical storytelling.
Honored to be playing Luck Reunion at Willie Nelson's Ranch with so many heroes and friends!
What a beautiful week. Cayamo was magic. This was one of my favorite moments. Got to sing a Don Williams song with John Paul White and Robert Ellis. Such a killer backing band!
