From the recording Red Beet Records - 2008

Of Jim Lauderdale’s many gifts, one of the best is his way of finding kindness and hope in life’s fractured places. Check out “Run Like You” to hear uncommon gentility and open-heartedness in the wake of a breakup. Or listen to this one, “I Know Better Now,” where he makes reservations for all of us at “some big hotel where weary hearts can rest.” This track is a showcase for subtle musical brilliance, with Dave Roe and Paul Griffith laying down a lovely pocket while Kenny Vaughan, Lloyd Green and Jen Gunderman take turns leading the dance.
