The Blues Don’t Lie is the amazing new album from Buddy Guy and features an impressive list of guests including Mavis Staples, Elvis Costello, James Taylor, Jason Isbell, and more.
Produced by songwriter/drummer Tom Hambridge, The Blues Don’t Lie is the 86 year old legend’s 34th studio album and the follow up to his 2018 Grammy winning The Blues Is Alive And Well.
The Blues Don’t Lie comes exactly 65 years to the day that Buddy Guy arrived in Chicago on a train from Baton Rouge, Louisiana in September of 1957, with just the clothes on his back and his guitar. His life would never be the same, and he was born again in the blues. The Blues Don’t Lie tells the story of his lifelong journey.
Reflecting on this body of work, Buddy says “I promised them all: B.B., Muddy, Sonny Boy, as long as I’m alive I’m going to keep the blues alive.” He has indeed proven that again, and proclaims, “I can’t wait for world to hear my new album cause the blues don’t lie.”
