The Music of Devil In The Hills
Singer/songwriter Mary Hott enlisted The Carpenter Ants, a longstanding West Virginia gospel-soul-Americana group as the backing band and collaborators of the album. The music ranges from bluesy Americana and roots rock to Celtic and gospel, and the deep groove of the anthemic “Rise Up, WV.” The album is mostly original songs with two covers, including a unique southern gospel version of West Virginia’s adopted state song, “Take Me Home, Country Roads.”
