“In 2000 Jim Carpenter won the Chicago Lake County Folk Festival's Songwriting Competition. His new record was recorded in Nashville and Loco Dare, his Connecticut studio. From the cover you'd expect a Jimmy Buffet sound, but this record is more Joe Ely and Tom Russell. Carpenter is an accomplished guitarist and his stories weave around familiar territory of lost opportunities on the human highway.
