Looking at life through the rearview mirror was the inspiration for John Hiatt’s brand new album, The Open Road. A classic Hiatt record, the rockin’ songs sizzle with the heat from two-lane blacktop on a summer’s day. Hiatt and his touring band (Kenny Blevins on drums, Patrick O’Hearn on bass and Doug Lancio on guitars) recorded a set that gives “Garage Rock” a new meaning. “All the other years, my songs are about coming home,” Hiatt says. But within these 11 new songs, including Haulin’ and the title track, The Open Road home is never the destination.
