LISTEN: Joe Hott, “Sweet Loving Lies”

Nov 18, 2019

LISTEN: Joe Hott,

Artist: Joe Hott
Hometown: Augusta, West Virginia
Song: “Sweet Loving Lies”
Album: West Virginia Rail
Label: Rural Rhythm Records

In Their Words: “‘Sweet Loving Lies’ was written by Glen Duncan, Adam Engelhardt, and myself. A lot of the songs we write have a Stanley Brothers feel, but with this song, the way it was written and put together it has a strong original Carter Family feel, lyrically. I was so excited when we came up with the line ‘Spring flowers were bloomin’ when you came to me.’ It really set the tone for the song and you could just hear Sara Carter singing that line as only she could. The original Carter Family has been a big influence on me over the years and to have a song that resembles them on this new album is amazing. ‘Sweet Loving Lies’ is a great old school song that I know the fans will enjoy.” — Joe Hott
