Recorded live at his home, 'Hank Williams Ghost' kicks off Scott's sixth solo disc sounding like Skynyrd's 'Sweet Home Alabama' but the opening verse instantly grabs your attention, affirming why he's a Grammy nominated and ASCAP Songwriter of the Year who doesn't need anyone's riffs but his own: "In the early morning hours / Before you're wide awake / Before you summon all your powers / To cover your big mistakes".
Reminiscent at times of recent Rodney Crowell — Let's Call It a Life, Do It Or Die Trying, even the emotional closer In My Final Hour — The Invisible Man may arguably be Scott's most mainstream recording. Surrounding himself with the best of Nashville – Danny Thompson-bass, Kenny Malone-drums, and Richard Bennett-guitar and keyboardist Gabe Dixon – Darrell then invites other like minded iconoclasts – Sam Bush, John Cowan, Dan Dugmore, and Andrea Zonn – to make the invisible man visible. Highlight tracks include: Shattered Cross, There's A Stone Around My Belly and The River Is Me.
