Good Old War’s Keith Goodwin tells Relix, “We made acoustic versions of most of our Broken Into Better Shape album so we could show listeners where the songs start before we put all the rest of the instrumentation in.”

Broke Into Better Shape was recorded in Nashville with producer Jason Lehning (Alison Krauss & Union Station, Dolly Parton, Mat Kearney) and mixed by another Grammy winner, engineer Vance Powell (Jack White, Houndmouth).  It’s the first album that the now duo –Goodwin and Dan Schwartz – worked with outside writers on such as the soaring “Fly Away,” which was written in NYC with Emile Haynie (Lady Antebellum, fun.).
