Paul Cauthen’s ‘Everybody Walkin’ This Land‘ was featured on the first episode of the new season of the Starz fantasy drama American Gods this week — Season 2, Episode 1, “House on the Rock“.
The song itself was played during the gunfight scene, and then the end credits of the episode. At the time, Cauthen’s voice sounded so similar to that of Johnny Cash, I did a double take when I heard it.
Paul Cauthen began his music career back in 2010 when he formed a duo called Beck & Cauthen with singer songwriter David Beck.
Their name was later changed to Sons of Fathers after indie musician Beck weirdly sent a cease and desist letter to the duo regarding their name. (Beck being a bit of a bully, I would say).
Cauthen eventually left the duo to strike out on a solo career. He then moved to Dallas where he began work on what was to become his debut album My Gospel, which was released in 2016.
Paul Cauthen’s ‘Everybody Walkin’ This Land‘ is from his 2018 seven-track debut EP Have Mercy. You can listen to ‘Everybody Walkin’ This Land’ in the video below, and hear his Have Mercy EP in its entirety in the Spotify widget below that.
