Edwin McCain's The Austin Sessions was his fifth album overall, but the first released after his split with longtime label Lava Records. ATC Records issued this album, which was recorded at Arlin Studios in Austin, Texas and Seventeen Grand Studios in Nashville, Tennessee. Sessions is completely acoustic, with a mix of new material, "fan favorites", and selected covers that he often plays at live shows.
