New York, NY (Top40 Charts) The Nashville-based duo Swearingen & Kelli are releasing their new song "Hot Southern Nights" just in time for the summer. This head-bopping, foot-stomping track is the first single from their upcoming album Cold-Hearted Truth, out September 20th.
"I wrote this song on the airplane after a visit with AJ's folks, looking through old family photos of their life in West Virginia. I just kind of romanticize that simpler time, especially with how life is today," Jayne Kelli said of the song, continuing, "We thought this was kind of fun and tongue and cheek for us, but when we played it for some friends they loved it, and so did our producer, Mitch Dane, who knew just what to do with it."

Cold-Hearted Truth, the third album from AJ Swearingen & Jayne Kelli, bridges the gap between modern-day Americana and the classic sounds of 1970s singer/songwriters. The album merges the talents of two artists - both of whom enjoyed acclaimed solo careers before partnering up for Swearingen & Kelli's 2013 debut - into a singular sound filled with close harmonies, swooning pedal steel, gospel piano, analog production, and storytelling both autobiographical and character-driven.

Recorded in a series of live takes with Grammy Award-winning producer Mitch Dane (Jars of Clay, The Blind Boys of Alabama) Cold-Hearted Truth is a collaboratively-written album rooted in honesty. The songs draw inspiration from the bandmates' personal lives and family histories, spinning stories about coal mine towns, southern nights, humble beginnings, and romance. They also shine a light on Swearingen & Kelli's raw, onstage chemistry, sharpened over the years via a long string of shows in symphony halls, opera houses, living rooms, and clubs. Inspired by the rebels and old-school icons of country music - including Kris Kristofferson, Lucinda Williams, Emmylou Harris, and Buddy Miller - Cold-Hearted Truth is a classic album for modern times.
