It's hard not to read the title of Close to Home as an admission of the album's contents. Chuck Mead does indeed stick to his Tennessee roots here, which may not be a surprise considering that the former leader of BR5-49 spent much of the 2010s directing the music on the Million Dollar Quartet musical and supervising the soundtrack for the CMT show Sun Records, and Close to Home does indeed bear a big rockabilly heart. Recorded with producer Matt Ross-Spang, who's helmed records by John Prine, Jason Isbell, and Margo Price, at Sam Phillips Recording Studios, Close to Home boasts a style that evokes old sounds and styles without doggedly replicating the past.
