Ward Hayden & The Outliers are releasing their seven-song album titled, Can’t Judge a Book. The album marks the band’s name change from Girls Guns & Glory to Ward Hayden & The Outliers. Can’t Judge a Book features songs by Nick Lowe, Chuck Berry, Fountains of Wayne and tunes made famous by Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley and Elvis Costello. The band decided to return to their roots with a cover album with each band member choosing songs having meaning to them. Hayden reflects that the name change, “Which is also why we’ve always considered that being a cowboy is a state of mind. And to continue adhering to The Cowboy Code we want to represent our band with a name that will describe who we are more accurately. Things have changed in the 12 years since naming the band. We have always considered ourselves outliers in the world of country music. We continue to have the same mission we’ve always had: to make heartfelt country music and rock ‘n’ roll, to connect with fans through shared experiences in venues and through recordings, and to continue moving forward, living life in search of the moments worth singing about.” The hard-touring, Boston-based band features Paul Dilley on upright/electric bass, Josh Kiggans on drums and Cody Nilsen on lead guitar/pedal steel.
