When Alabama-native Will Kimbrough isn't performing with the legendary Emmylou Harris' band, he's busy with his own successful solo career. His latest offering is I Like it Down Here (out on April 19), an examination of the region that shaped him: the Deep South.
"I'm Not Running Away," which Wide Open Country is premiering today, is a celebration of life on the road.
Kimbrough says, despite the reputation of road warriors, the highway life hasn't impeded his ability to live life to the fullest. In fact, it's done just the opposite.
"I have been living on the road since I graduated from high school," Kimbrough tells Wide Open Country. "And yet I'm in a 25 year marriage, and we've just about raised two amazing daughters. 'I'm Not Running Away' is both a reassurance to my loved ones and a statement of restlessness. Hank Williams' Lost Highway rolls on. I'll be on it, somewhere."
Listen to "I'm Not Running Away" below.
