Matt Woods 

When: Thu., Dec. 5 2013

9 p.m., Free

Knoxville, Tenn.-based country boy Matt Woods is currently finishing up work on his latest album. And while the LP won’t hit the streets until the spring, Woods has released a three-track 7-inch vinyl and digital single, “Deadman’s Blues,” which offers a little bit of insight into what’s to come. Unlike 2011’s The Matt Woods Manifesto, the new record features fewer players and more open arrangements. “I think the result has been a pretty intimate feeling album,” Woods says. Expect to hear some of his new tracks at the Home Team show, including one of his personal favorites, the prison tune “With Love from Brushy Mountain.” Though Woods describes his sound as “outlaw country” and “Southern roots,” he doesn’t care much for labels. “Mostly, I’ve come to realize that we are all just folks on different blocks of the same street, songwriters hoping to have one of our tunes matter to someone,” he says. In the future, Woods expects to continue his journey as guitar-strumming, day-drinking pinball wizard. He laughs, “I will be wherever life takes me — somewhere with a guitar strapped to me playing songs for folks.” —Kalyn Oyer THURSDAY
