For his third solo album, Chaffin "revisits his Southern roots and brings them to bear on the music he loves best. It's a meeting of two worlds — the sounds of the Old South gently filtered through the music of Broadway — and the result is a deeply personal journey." The songwriters include Harold Arlen, Burton Lane, Frank Loesser, Arthur Schwartz, Johnny Mercer and Jerry Herman.

"Leaving on a Jet Plane"
