On The Horses and the Hounds, the acclaimed songwriter backs personal narratives with effortless elegance ('Canola Fields') and endless energy ('If It Don't Bleed'). This first collection in seven years spotlights a seasoned tunesmith in peak form as he turns toward reflection ('Vaquero') and revelation (closer 'Blackberry Winter'). Familiar foundations guide the journey. The Horses and the Hounds is a reunion of sorts. McMurtry recorded the album with legendary producer Ross Hogarth (Ozzy Osbourne, John Fogerty, Van Halen, Keb' Mo') at Jackson Browne's Groovemaster's in Santa Monica, California. Hogarth recorded McMurtry's first two albums, Too Long in the Wasteland and Candyland and later mixed McMurtry's first self-produced album, Saint Mary of the Woods. Another veteran of those three releases, guitarist David Grissom (Joe Ely, John Mellencamp, Dixie Chicks), returns with some of his finest work.
