Prime Cut:
“It Ain’t Cool” – Kimbrough is at his best when his songwriting is simultaneously poignant and tongue-in-cheek. This bluesy shuffle, co-written with Todd Snider, pontificates the benefits of keeping one’s mouth firmly shut.

Choice Words:
Every step’s a miracle
And every breath’s a gift
So I wear a smile and grateful prayer
Upon my lips

Tomorrow’s just a mystery
So I believe I’ll take
A couple hundred miracles today
