The Wood Brothers have received their first ever GRAMMY Award-nomination for One Drop of Truth, in the “Best Americana Album” category.  The album was released February 2, 2018 via Honey Jar/Thirty Tigers, the 10-track collection wich is their sixth studio recording to date, was self-produced by the longstanding trio featuring Oliver WoodChris Wood and Jano Rix.  

Building off the success of their previous studio album, Paradise, and their live release, Live At the BarnThe Wood Brothers found themselves at a fortuitous crossroad. Thanks to a loyal and growing fan base leading to sold out headline shows and high-profile festival appearances, the band felt free from the cyclical album release, tour, write, record and do-it-all-over-again pressures. With all three members living in Nashville affording easy access to each other and a wealth of local independent studios at their disposal, they started work on One Drop Of Truth in January 2017.

The band worked with engineers Scotty Hard (Medeski Martin & Wood) who was recruited for the edgier, funkier tunes, “Sky High” and “Happiness Jones.” Mike Poole (who worked on The Wood Brothers album The Muse) mixed “Sparkling Wine” and “Strange As It Seems.” Their old friend Brandon Belle from Zac Brown’s Southern Ground studio took on “Laughin’ Or Crying.” The remainder of the album was mixed by Grammy Award-winning engineer Trina Shoemaker, especially sought after by The Wood Brothers for her work with Brandi Carlile

“It’s the freest album we’ve done, the most independent album we’ve done, and was the most fun we’ve ever had making a record,” said Oliver Wood. “And most importantly, this is the most purely Wood Brothers’ album we’ve ever made.”
