The Long Road Home

Gary Bonnett was raised in West Virginia but now makes his home in Tucson, Ariz., and The Long Road Home carries echoes of both his Appalachian past and his red-dirt present. Often quite literally, in fact—“Rock Cave” documents a road trip back to his hometown (where the people love me, no matter how much hell I’ve raised), and he covers Denton King’s “West Virginians Are Coming Home.” The lyrics also have a certain duality of spirit: Alongside the tales of hell-raising on Long Road sit forthright declarations of a more spiritual bent on songs like the standout “I’m a Christian.”
