By Any Other Name is the twelfth full-length release from Nothin' Fancy but their debut project for Mountain Fever Records. It features nine original songs written by Mike Andes, an original instrumental by Chris Sexton’s father “Buster” Sexton, as well as two well-loved classics; “Last Train From Poor Valley” and “Bluebirds Are Singing For Me” — the latter featuring the band's newest member, Caleb Cox on lead vocals. Produced by Aaron Ramsey and Mark Hodges, By Any Other Name promises to be a fresh approach to the music of Nothin’ Fancy while still delivering the tasteful vocal blend, dynamic instrumentation, and energetic presentation for which Nothin' Fancy has become known.
