Discussing the album and its themes McConnell shares:
“The older I get, the more I find that is what it’s all about – that there is no way to answer it all. “Being comfortable with mystery is a positive thing in all aspects of our lives. I definitely explore that in these songs.”
“These are stories that people are familiar with,” adds McConnell, “and they steer the ship in a certain direction, then leave you off at this ocean of possibilities that we didn’t plan on the story taking us to.”
Secondhand Smoke was written, recorded and produced by McConnell is his Nashville home studio. The album arrives following McConnell’s recent European shows where he supported Ashley Monroe, including two sold-out shows at London’s Bush Hall.
