Dixie Lullaby is an album by the American southern rock/country rock band The Kentucky Headhunters. It was released on October 18, 2011 through Red Dirt Records.

Critical reception[edit]

Giving it three-and-a-half stars out of five, William Ruhlmann of Allmusic thought that the songs were "steeped in familiar structures" and "will fit right in with the band's earlier material".[1] An identical rating came from Jonathan Keefe of Slant Magazine, who said that "What the album lacks in surprises it makes up for in pure, unadulterated swagger" and that the Headhunters "are still one of the finest Southern-rock outfits around."[2]
