Singer/songwriter Heather Luttrell introduces one of her new songs, “Road Home To Hell,” as the reason she no longer eats Mexican food for breakfast. Seems a while back, she had a big enchilada meal, then during her subsequent siesta had a vivid dream about a good-evil counterpart situation.
In the dream, she said, “the devil’s 15-year-old daughter pops up above ground, makes fun of the counterpart Southern Baptist girl and then crashes her house party.”
Maybe she should not disdain such repasts. It’s a good song, one of several good ones on her new album, “Possumdiva.” Luttrell brings the new disc with her to Growler’s American Grill for a Nov. 14 performance with her Possumden duo. Get show details in Thursday’s Inside Out.
She even enlisted her sister to help her make a video for the song. Luttrell plays the devil’s daughter, while her sister plays the Southern Baptist girl. Scenes from the still-unfinished video include the devil’s daughter trying to eat a kitten’s head, while her Baptist counterpart is there to stop her.
“They had a great time together, but there’s still a cardinal difference,” Luttrell says of the story. “I’m trying to do what’s right … but I can’t, because I’m just built this way. I’m the devil’s daughter, what the hell do I know right from wrong?”
On this podcast, we discuss the record, as well as her sixth consecutive ride aboard the Lynyrd Skynyrd Simple Man Cruise ship. Non-shocking hint about the latter — booze is plentiful and readily available to the Skynyrd fans and bands playing the cruise.
