JOHN HIATT with The JERRY DOUGLASS BAND – “Mississippi Phone Booth”

Posted: May 17, 2021 in MUSIC

Leftover Feelings

John Hiatt and Jerry Douglas released a live performance video for their new song, “Mississippi Phone Booth”. Filmed at the Cannery Ballroom in Nashville, TN, the video highlights Hiatt’s stellar vocals and lyricism, and Douglas’ thoughtful and innovative instrumentals.

John Hiatt with The Jerry Douglas Band’s Leftover Feelings was produced by Douglas and recorded at Historic RCA Studio B in Nashville. A meeting of two American music giants in a legendary setting, Leftover Feelings is neither a bluegrass album nor a return to Hiatt’s 1980s days with slide guitar greats Ry Cooder and Sonny Landreth. There’s no drummer, yet these grooves are deep and true. And while the up-tempo songs are, as ever, filled with delightful internal rhyme and sly aggression, The Jerry Douglas Band’s empathetic musicianship nudges Hiatt to performances that are startlingly vulnerable.”

Hiatt and Douglas have known each other for years, but Leftover Feelings is the first time the duo have recorded music together. 

Happy to release another track today from my forthcoming album with The Jerry Douglas Band, Leftover Feelings. 

From the new album ‘Leftover Feelings,’ out May 21st (New West Records):
