Thom has seen the country music business from every conceivable angle, from co-writing hits like Kenny Rogers’ “Love Will Turn You Around” to reaching No. 1 himself as part of the 1980s trio S-K-O (“Baby’s Got a New Baby”) and later signing artists like Kenny Chesney and Lonestar as a record label executive. But Prayer of a Desperate Man presents him simply as a crackerjack tunesmith with a knack for flashes of disarming humor, whether he’s addressing the equalizing power of spirituality on the title cut or more simple pleasures on the candy-coated “(Ain’t Nothin’ Wrong With a) Kit Kat.”
