Sometimes less is more. That's part of what drove Cliff Eberhardt to record his latest album in the sparse style that he did.

"500 Miles: The Blue Rock Sessions" was recorded in the Texas Hill country at Blue Rock Studios with some of hottest players in Austin, Texas. Instead of filling in all the musical spaces with sound, Cliff decided to let the silences speak for themselves. Some have called this album his finest to date.

Cliff Eberhardt is touring in support of this record and stopped into the Radio Heartland studios.

Songs performed: "Have A Little Heart," "I Love Money," and "I Want To Take You Home."
