#29 on American Songwriter’s Top 50 Albums Of 2012
Worried Man made American Songwriter's list of the best albums of the year. “‘Too Stoned to Cry' could be mistaken for a country classic, if it weren’t the lyricism that proves this is a totally modern voice.” Check out the list here.

We’re excited to announce the release of Andrew Combs’ debut album, Worried Man. The album was recorded and mixed over the last year with co-producer Mike Odmark, and the core band of Spencer Cullum, Jr., on pedal steel, Jeremy Fetzer on lead guitar, Mike Rinne on bass, Micah Hulscher on keyboards, and Jon Radford on drums.
The official release date is Oct 30th, though you can pre-order a CD or digital copy of the album now, via Bandcamp. You can also get a free download of the title track and read the story behind the song over at American Songwriter.
Gearing up for some major announcements next month (plus the AmericanaFest on 9/14)… but in the meantime, Andrew will join Caitlin Rose at the Basement this Friday 8/17. Steelism will be the backing band for this show, and stay tuned for more news on Jeremy Fetzer and Spencer Cullum, Jr.’s excellent instrumental side project. Show print by Sarah Helen Parker. Heavy Dirt opens.
After wrapping up the Mechanical-Kernal tour, Andrew has a few more summer dates to announce—including a stop later this month at the Billy Reid store in Florence, Alabama, during the annual W.C. Handy Fest.
Andrew will play at the High Watt on Friday night of the annual Americana Music Association Festival, which is held in Nashville from September 12-15. It’s another great year with heroes like Billy Joe Shaver and Buddy Miller and buds Shovels & Rope and Robert Ellis.
