Teddy Thompson Turns To Country

One may find it difficult to believe but Teddy Thompson‘s career started more than two decades ago, when the youngster went off on a well-rooted tangent from the familiar folk-rock – the genre he inherited from both parents’ musical genes. What’s not so hard to wrap one’s mind around, though, is this artist’s affection for the American branch of traditional tree as hidden tracks on Teddy’s first two albums originated in country, and Thompson’s third offering “Upfront & Down Low” consisted – almost entirely, save for a sole self-penned number – of country cuts too. So there’s little surprise in the 47-year-old veteran’s 2023 platter being titled “My Love Of Country” and, again, featuring, almost exclusively, well-known material.

Scheduled for release on August 18th, the record includes pieces from the repertoire of George Jones, Patsy Cline, Porter Wagoner and other golden-era performers, as well as a track from Randy Travis’ treasure chest, and “I’ll Regret It All In The Morning” from Teddy’s pop and mom’s “Hokey Pokey” album – all delivered with the feeling they deserve by a much more mature singer than Thomson was in 2007 when his first country effort saw the light of day. Judging by the platter’s initial single (watch the video below), it’s going to be a treat – or even a guilty pleasure. Note also TT’s impression of Uncle Ray on the cover.
