Rob Leines – the country-rock frontman and blue-collar road warrior who regularly spends more than 200 nights a year onstage, bashing out a mix of Telecaster twang, guitar-driven grit, and southern storytelling. Co-produced by Leines and Eric Rennaker, Blood Sweat and Beers doubles down on the raw, rowdy stomp of Leines’ live show. For years, he’s described his sound as “if Skynyrd and Cash had a baby,” although Blood Sweat and Beer explores the wider orbit of country-rock, too. “Patty Lynn” is a murder ballad fit for campfires and front-porch pickin’ parties, “Hold On” is an acoustic love song, and “Good Time” spotlights Leines at his funkiest, trading the amplified twang of Bad Seed for something soulful and greasy. At the center of Blood Sweat and Beers, though, are songs that rip, riff, and roar, from “Bailing Hay” — a four-on-the-floor rabble-rouser that’s equal parts ZZ Top and Waylon Jennings — to “Southern Breeze,” an autobiographical anthem that salutes Leines’ homeland. Recorded with Leines’ live band, Blood Sweat and Beers is a snapshot of a frontman in forward motion: his chops sharpened by a touring schedule that’s kept him on the road for years, and his songs aimed somewhere between the listener’s head, heart, and dancing shoes. These songs encourage the audience to keep moving, too. Blood Sweat and Beers is country music with a blue-collar rock & roll pulse — a sound that blurs the lines between genres, one amped-up anthem at a time.
