Paul Cauthen's "New Sermon to Save Your Soul" (Vice Noisey), 'Have Mercy' out June 22 via Lightning Rod RecordsSlated to perform at NYC and LA shows, a Grand Ole Opry debut, and on a tour with Shakey Graves
On Friday, June 22, Paul Cauthen will release his 'Have Mercy,' his no-bullshit statement of truth, love and mercy. Hailed by Vice Noisey as "a New Sermon to Save Your Soul" and landing somewhere between an EP and and album, the seven new, original tracks on 'Have Mercy' mark Cauthen's most powerful, distinctive writing to date, searching for common ground peace of mind in an increasingly polarized world.
Cauthen's 'Have Mercy' was the most added at Americana radio and is Top 40 on the AMA Albums Chart. The track "Resignation" is Top 40 on the Americana singles chart, and "Everybody Walkin' This Land" is featured on Spotify's "Swagger" playlist.
To preview the release, the Texas-bred crooner who No Depression has pegged as "a psychedelic Cash-and-Waylon-on-acid" will perform two shows in New York this week before making his Grand Ole Opry debut on Friday, June 22. Next month, Paul will open for Shakey Graves on select dates and will begin a West coast headline tour. See below for a complete list of shows.
