The Texas-born singer-songwriter is back with his first album in seven years, Miles and Miles of You.
Welcome back, Pat Green!
It’s been nearly four years since we last talked to the Texas-born singer-songwriter described by USA Today as “the heartland rocker that country music has needed for years.” At the time, he was eager — and just a tad proud — to promote Dancehall Dreamin’: A Tribute to Pat Green, a tribute album that celebrated his 25 years as a performer with performances of his signature songs by many of his contemporaries (including Jack Ingram, Aaron Watson, and The Randy Rogers Band).
But that was then, this is now: Green has just released Miles and Miles of You, his first studio album in seven years, and a promotional documentary to go along with it. Among the highlights of the new recording: The Pearly Gates party-hearty anthem “If It Don’t Have a Honky Tonk.”
“I’m so excited to finally have my new project Miles and Miles of You into the people’s hands,” Green says. “I only put out a record when the time is right, and after Covid I really felt like this was the time. So much life happened in that year off the road and that is what we captured on this project. The ups, the downs, the sideways and all the laughs that we could muster. I sure hope you like it as much as we loved making it for you.”
We certainly did. Just as we enjoyed Pat Green’s visit to the C&I Studio.
