"The old poet gods smiled on Matt King as well as the legendary blues saints, so you got one badass walking cool songwriting and guitar playing mother's son who got the solid goods."
RAY WYLIE HUBBARD
"Matt King writes and sings songs that are so achingly true to life that they make you want to cry, or ball up your fists, or burn something down. He writes and sings not in silly cliches about a South that no longer is, but the scourges of my modern South, about meth and layoffs and men and women grabbing for their last hope. And somehow, it makes it a joy to hear."
