-Eric Zorn, Chicago Tribune

featuring Tom Kimmel, Kate Campbell and Pierce Pettis. They are launching a tour showcasing stories and music steeped in the cultural foundations of the South. The trio’s name is inspired loosely on the Southern Agrarians, a collection of literary figures of the early 20th Century which, among other things, bemoaned what they viewed as a threat of modernism to the Southern Culture. The group was originally known as the Fugitive Poets and included the likes of Robert Penn Warren and John Crowe Ransom. The Agrarians were given rise from Nashville’s Vanderbilt University and their movement was launched in response to criticisms of the Southern way of life raised by H.L. Mencken.

"If records were novels, "That Kind of Love"(Pettis release) would be the kind of absorbing read that makes it to the top of the New York Times bestseller list. Instead we have an album full of story songs intelligently written, with beautiful melodies. Each tune reaches deep into the heart. The music of Pierce Pettis is timeless. "That Kind of Love" should be in every music lover's collection. It is simply that good." (FAME)
