Home Grown is an album by the American alternative country group Blue Mountain, released in 1997.[5][6]

Critical reception[edit]

The Washington Post praised "Hudson's affection for the odd characters who inhabit, or sometimes just float through, small Southern towns."[7]

AllMusic wrote: "Homegrown is informed by melodic smarts absent from so many contemporary alt-country records; [Cary] Hudson's parched, Dylan-esque vocals remain wonderfully evocative as well, helping establish an authentic sense of time and place."[3]
