New York writer Dave Rubin stated, "If Tim "Too Slim" Langford only played slide guitar, he would slither around most other blues guitarists and take a ferocious bite out of their pride. But as the sole six-string slinger, songwriter and lead vocalist of the power trio Too Slim and the Taildraggers, Langford is a force of nature leaving musical tracks others try to follow".
Those tracks led to Nashville, where Langford has been hanging and working with the big dogs. After teaming up with Grammy-winning producer Tom Hambridge (Buddy Guy, ZZ Top, Joe Louis Walker, George Thorogood, Susan Tedeschi...) Langford headed into the studio to track a new album, Blue Heart, released in June 2013. Now Langford has again teamed up with Tom Hambridge to co-write and record three new songs for the upcoming June 2014 release of "Anthology". "Anthology" features the recordings of Langford from the Underworld Records catalog spanning the last 15 years. To top it off, in May 2014 through January 2015, Tim "Too Slim" Langford was chosen to be featured at the Nashville International Airport and the Country Music Hall of Fame alongside the likes of Elton John, Emmylou Harris, Rodney Crowell, Buddy Miller, Ray Stephenson, and The Carolina Chocolate Drops.
