Artist to watch Drayton Farley’s anticipated new album, Twenty on High, is out today via Hargrove Records/Thirty Tigers. Stream/purchase HERE.

Produced by Sadler Vaden (Morgan Wade) and recorded at Sound Emporium Studios in Nashville, TN, Twenty on High features ten new original songs that demonstrate Farley’s deep, introspective songwriting and honest delivery.

Critical acclaim for Twenty on High:

“The honesty, ache and resolution in Farley’s rough-hewn voice are palpable, making him a potential major contender with the new wave of rawer rock production and vulnerable vocals that is currently impacting country music”—Billboard

“Farley’s artfully composed, descriptive, often brooding lyrics, engaging, fresh-faced vocals, and effortlessly melodic tunes display a talented artist ready to take his career to the next level.”—American Songwriter

“the rich, propulsive, full-band sound suits Drayton”—Brooklyn Vegan

“excellent, excellent stuff…a frontrunner for the album of the year”—Whiskey Riff

“A terrific addition to the Americana family, Drayton Farley nudges the genre along different, often darker paths.”—Holler

“there is no doubt Drayton Farley can squeeze as much emotion out of an acoustic guitar as anyone ever has”—Twangville

Reflecting on the record, Farley shares, “My new album, Twenty on High will serve as my breakout record and I believe these ten new songs to be my absolute best work yet. This album will be my first ever full band release. The goal was to keep the songs honest and true and their stories at the forefront. To have the music serve the song but still make a record that would stand the test of time. I believe that’s exactly what we’ve done here and I couldn’t be prouder.”

After performing shows with Willie Nelson, Zach Bryan and Nikki Lane, Farley will join Lukas Nelson & POTR, 49 Winchester and Whiskey Myers on the road this year in addition to full-band, headline shows at Lexington’s The Burl and Nashville’s 3rd & Lindsley this weekend. See below for complete tour itinerary.

In addition to Farley on acoustic guitar and vocals, the record features special guest vocals by Waxahatchee’s Katie Crutchfield on the song, “The Alabama Moon” as well as Vaden (acoustic guitar, electric guitar, keys, and vocals), Chad Gamble (drums and percussion), Jimbo Hart (bass) and Peter Levin (piano, Hammond organ, Wurlitzer and synths) and Kristin Weber (fiddle).

Born in Woodstock, Alabama, Farley has received widespread acclaim following the release of his 2021 album, A Hard Up Life. Of the record, Americana Highways praised, “lyrics that are immediately reminiscent of the humor and subtlety of John Prine, the directness and honesty of Bob Dylan, and the everyman gravity of Pete Seeger, Farley firmly establishes himself as one of the great American voices in folk and Americana music.”
