Any Way the Wind Blows is the second and final studio album by American country music duo Brother Phelps. After its release, Doug re-joined country rock band The Kentucky Headhunters, of which he and Ricky Lee were both members previous to Brother Phelps' inception. This album produced singles in its title track and "Not So Different After All", although neither charted in the Top 40 on the Billboard country charts. The title track was originally recorded by JJ Cale on his 1974 album Okie. The track "Ragtop" was previously recorded by The Kentucky Headhunters on their 1989 debut album Pickin' on Nashville, while "Cinderella" is a cover of a song originally released by the rock band Firefall. "Down into Muddy Water" would later be recorded by Shelly Fairchild on her 2004 debut album Ride.
