Bob Wanye kommentiert das Album folgendermaßen: "When I had the idea to record a cover album my first thoughts were Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, so my biggest influences in this kind of music. However, in the end, you cannot top Johnny Cash. Until now I had never really played any cover versions, not even live, simply because you cannot hit the mark of Johnny Cash. Whenever I play his songs it is never as good as the original." Still, Cash's highly successful "American Recordings" planted the seed of doing an album with cover versions in BOB WAYNE. "On those he covered Soundgarden, Nine Inch Nails, Nick Cave or Tom petty just as acoustic versions. 'Hits The Hits' is my attempt to do covers myself, but with a full band, so including everything from fiddle to banjos... I did it my style. The challenge was pretty exciting."
