Crossing Muddy Waters was singer-songwriter John Hiatt's fifteenth album, released in 2000. A raw album recorded with no drummer, it was a purely acoustic album that brought elements of bluegrass music into his Americana sound. The title of the album is a pun, referencing blues legend Muddy Waters. It was nominated for a Grammy award in 2001 for Best Contemporary Folk Album. All tracks written by John Hiatt. Lincoln Town" – 4:03. Crossing Muddy Waters" – 4:05. What Do We Do Now" – 2:58.
Hiatt retrenched and recorded his first drummer-less, predominantly acoustic record for Vanguard. It's a sympathetic match and a smart move, since the company has a long, rich history working in the unplugged medium before it became trendy. The result is the most natural and relaxed John Hiatt album in years, and a welcome addition to his extensive catalog. With just a duo of acoustic ts, Davey Faragher and David Immergluck (both longtime associates), Hiatt pulls out some of the most earnest, down-to-earth songs of his career
