Todd Snider Returns to Folksinger Roots on New Song ‘Just Like Overnight’

Rolling Stone — Jonathan Bernstein

Todd Snider has released “Just Like Overnight,” the first track available off Cash Cabin Sessions, Vol. 3, the singer-songwriter’s upcoming album.

Recorded at the Cash Cabin Studio in Hendersonville, Tennessee, Johnny Cash’s former cabin-studio now owned by his son John Carter Cash, Snider’s next project is the folk songwriter’s first solo studio album since 2016’s wild alter-ego LP Eastside Bulldog.

The largely solo-acoustic album finds Snider returning to his original format of folksinger after a multi-album detour as frontman of the roots-jam outfit Hard Working Americans. After those albums, including 2014’s self-titled and 2016’s Rest in Chaos, Snider’s latest LP is the most sparsely-produced record of his career.

Performed by Snider on acoustic guitar and harmonica, “Just Like Overnight” is a nostalgic reflection on time and aging that finds the Nashville resident back in classic storytelling form.

“It’s a list of things are gone disguised as a story,” he says of the song, which features backing vocals by Jason Isbell during the chorus.

Snider will be touring the United States throughout the winter and spring. Cash Cabin Sessions, Vol. 3 is in stores on March 15th.
