KevinAbernathy4thumbFollowing the release of his critically-acclaimed 2012 solo record, “Some Stories,” Kevin Abernathy hit the road pretty hard, traveling far and wide with just his well-worn Gibson acoustic guitar, a passel of songs, and the desire to play for whoever would listen.

That year or more of the troubadour’s life caused the Knoxville, Tennessee, singer-songwriter to realize something: he missed playing the electric guitar, which had been a crucial element to the three Kevin Abernathy Band albums that preceded “Some Stories.”

After several happy hour discussions with friend Tim Lee, the pair set out to record a followup to “Some Stories” that would allow Abernathy to stretch out and put his extensive guitar prowess on display without sacrificing of his story-telling skills and innate melodic sense.

KevinAbernathy1thumbThe result, “Ain’t Learned Yet,” was recorded over the course of 2013 and ’14 at several studios in the Knoxville area and featuring both Lee’s and Abernathy’s respective bands. The powerful rock n’ roll of tracks such as the opener, “Cause And Effect,” sit comfortably alongside more contemplative fare like “How Lucky The Night” and the heartbroken honky-tonk of “You Must Be Lonely.”

The whole package is tied together with Abernathy’s innovative guitar work, straightforward songcraft, and emotive vocals.

Mission Accomplished. Give “Ain’t Learned Yet” a listen. It’s an education worth receiving.
