The Sweet Potatoes
The Sweet Potatoes dish up a fresh mix of country, folk and Americana, sure to bring a smile to your face with their sweet harmonies and finely crafted songwriting. Featuring Laura Hall, Kelly Macleod and Rick Hall.
Produced by Nashville favorite, Phil Swann, the band is joined in the studio by guests that include David Carpenter (Billy Ray Cyrus, Julian Lennon) and Laura Hall's bandmate from her “day job” as the pianist on “Whose Line is it Anyway”, Linda Taylor (Maia Sharp, Crystal Bowersox).
Original songs by band members Laura Hall and Kelly Macleod include “Sweet Thing”, a back porch style ode to love, and “You Kissed Me That Way”, a driving ballad about the power of that first kiss. The CD title comes from their bluegrass infused tune about the joys of rural living, “Spunky Bottoms”. The band also does a bluesy take on Patsy Cline's “Walkin' After Midnight”, and a delicately dark acoustic version of The Eurthymics “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)”.
