What People are saying about The WFH

In the leadoff track, "Give Your Love To Me," the Headliners slip into an NRBQ-like rolling groove in a plea for affection bursting with a journeyman's facility for boiling sentiments down to the witty essentials

"The chemistry created in this collaboration is captivating. Big Al Anderson, Shawn Camp and Pat McLaughlin—with plenty of help from bassist Michael Rhodes and drummer Greg Morrow—have made an album that justifies the band's hyperbolic, tongue-in-cheek name...These Headliners deserve boldface type."
- Steven Wine, Associated Press

Together, these five battle-hardened veterans lay down a barrage of god-a'mighty licks, slap-your-face grooves, and unforgettable, can't-get-it-out-of-my-head songs. To these ears, there really isn't another album out there like this one.

“NRBQ fans need not be the only ones that apply on this terrific roots-rockin' Americana album. Big Al Anderson's string bending chops aside, there is much to dig on this flat-out snap, cracklin' rockin' 12 cut release.”

“These five guys have already broken into the business and experienced various kinds of success for decades. They could easily be in cruise-control mode. Instead, they’ve gotten seriously playful with their well-honed chops — and not the least bit showy — making it damn hard not to enjoy their wired and wiry Southern groove-pop right along with them.”

“The World Famous Headliners’ name is tongue-in-cheek, but at the band’s core are some world-class songwriters. Al Anderson (ex-NRBQ), Shawn Camp, Pat McLaughlin have teamed with the expert rhythm section of Michael Rhodes on bass and Greg Morrow on drums on a debut album that’s all over the map musically and fun throughout.”

"...[Al Anderson] kicks off the opening track on this self-titled album by shouting out a little encouragement to the band, "Come on, don't be pussies!", before they launch into a Dave Edmunds-styled rocker, "Give Your Love To Me", in which Big Al proceeds to shred the bejesus out of a guitar solo hotter than anything I've heard since his days in NRBQ."

Anderson has teamed up with fellow Nashville mainstays Shawn Camp and Pat McLaughlin for a musical romp both playful and accomplished.

There’s a loose and smirky feel to the songs. To wit: the vocalized backing on “Give Your Love to Me” is the sound of a bunch of guys who wanted a horn section but couldn’t round up the cash to rent one.

"The trading off of lead vocals and harmonies, as well as the guitar playing that is so impressive throughout without ever being too flashy and a rhythm section that any other band would kill for."

" Camp, who has penned hit singles for Brooks & Dunn, Garth Brooks, Blake Shelton, George Strait and Josh Turner, is teaming with two equally heralded country songwriters – Al Anderson and Pat McLaughlin – to step out of the songwriting shadows and into the spotlight as the World Famous Headliners."
