ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Kory and Kelsey Wells’ words and music go together like peaches and cream. Like meat and potatoes. Like pintos and cornbread.

Their fusion of Kory’s words & Kelsey’s old-time music has been called "bluegrass rap," "hillbilly cool," and and "moving, fun, spiritual and sassy." The mother and daughter are actually kind of suburb nerdy, but they love their Southern, Appalachian roots.

The duo has entertained audiences at the Southern Festival of Books, bookstores, libraries, museums and other venues, including WDVX Knoxville’s live radio show, the Blue Plate Special. This album collects the crowds' favorites of Kory’s poems accompanied by Kelsey’s old-time music. (By the way, if the word “poetry” makes you nervous, please substitute “spoken word.” If you’re not sure you know or like old-time music, please substitute “bluegrass” or “Americana” or “folk.”)

As you'd suspect from the album cover and title, there is a mention of cornbread on this album – as well as hominy, grits, fried baloney, flaky biscuits, sweet tea and more. There are also mentions of Jerry Lee Lewis, Lynrd Skynrd, the Beatles, Bach, Darrell Scott and other musicians. There are poems about working men, jilted women, the new folks in town, and the natives who have never left.

To go with her mom's poems about family, fiddling, food, faith, and a whole bunch of other things that don’t start with the letter f, Kelsey plays old standards like “Cluck Old Hen,” “Angeline the Baker,” and “In the Sweet By and By,” as well as new tunes she’s written.

Three of the tracks feature Kelsey singing the lyrics of some old-time tunes, and Kory responding to those lyrics with her poems imagining the words of the women being sung about.
