“Filled with gritty firsthand experience,” Pat Reedy’s new album is out today and Rolling Stone Country has new video for “Nashville Tennessee at 3AM”
Pat Reedy’s new album That’s All There Is is out today on Muddy Roots Records, and Rolling Stone Country has a premiere of the video for album standout “Nashville Tennesse at 3AM.” RS says “the sharp-tongued songwriter sounds like a spiritual descendent of the town's famed outlaw generation.”
American Songwriter says “Nashville Tennessee at 3AM” is a song that “tempers its brutal honesty with crystalline pedal steel and Reedy’s unflappable baritone vocals.”
The Tennessean profiled Pat this week, ahead of his album release show at American Legion Post 82 in Nashville this Saturday night, praising his “unvarnished baritone and the stone-cold country arrangements.”
Rolling Stone Country had previously named Pat a “New Country Artist You Need To Know,” saying his music is “drawling, a little rough around the edges, and delivered with a booming baritone that could be heard over a bulldozer.”
Wide Open Country says “armed with the wit of Billy Joe Shaver and the swagger of Waylon Jennings, Pat Reedy is one to watch” and Saving Country Music says “if you’re looking for the real deal, its name is Pat Reedy.”
That's All There Is was written during breaks in Pat’s construction job helping to build high-rises around Nashville, with lyrics scribbled down on scraps of paper and discarded pieces of wood. Maybe that's why these songs — with their warm, rough-around-the-edges charm — sound natural, not forced. Pat’s influenced by the artists who filled the airwaves during his childhood years — including Dwight Yoakam, Mark Chesnutt, and George Jones.
