That'll Work is the fourth studio album by American blues pianist Johnnie Johnson and American country rock band The Kentucky Headhunters. It was released in August 1993 via Nonesuch Records.

The members of The Kentucky Headhunters wrote all twelve songs on the album with Johnson over the course of twelve days.[1]

Critical reception[edit]

Thom Owens of Allmusic rated the album 2 stars out of 5, saying that "They certainly can work a heavy, bluesy groove with dexterity, but they lack the gonzo charm they had on their debut, Pickin' on Nashville — there simply isn't the sense of careening fun, nor is there the reckless fusions that resulted in such an invigorating listen."[2]
