A Fool To Care is the follow-up to the critically acclaimed 2013 album Memphis, which Rolling Stone described as ‘sublime’ and hit the #1 spot on the Billboard Blues Chart and the Top 20 on the Billboard 200.  Produced by Steve Jordan (Stevie Nicks, Bob Dylan, John Mayer) and recorded over four days at Blackbird Studio in Nashville, A Fool To Care features two very special guests – Bonnie Raitt contributes slide guitar and sassy vocals on the original song “Hell To Pay” and Lucinda Williams trades vocal lines with Scaggs as a kind of prayer for deliverance on The Band’s “Whispering Pines.” The core band joining Boz on A Fool To Care is Willie Weeks (bass), Ray Parker Jr. (guitars), Jim Cox (keyboard) and Steve Jordan (drums).
