I have begun working on my next release, and I had the time of my life last Friday at a 12 hour session at Ocean Way, working with some of the best musicians, songwriters and singers on earth. I am not sure what this next album will be called, but I have 10-12 songs, most of which I have written, for it. This session last Friday was made up of songs I have written. I am enjoying working on finishing them, making sure each line is the best it can be. I had not seen some of these old friends of mine in years, and it brought back memories from when I worked with them at the age of nineteen on Music Row (when I got my first publishing deal). I used to work daily with Mark Capps, the sound engineer, at the Soundshop owned by Buddy Killen. Mark now has a collection of Grammys, and the same goes for most of the people pictured. Photos in the order pictured: Bruce Bouton (steel, dobro), Jeff Taylor (piano, keys), myself, Dennis Crouch (upright bass), Mark Capps (engineer) and Jeff Crossan (co-writer on one of the songs). Last that day we did the background vocals with Monty Allen and Suzanne Young, and they were perfect together. The whole day could not have been better, and we all shared a musical chemistry that was special. Pictured also is Kaitlyn who was assistant to Mark Capps as engineer. I began the day with B. James Lowry, as we started with guitar vocals and built from there. We all had a lot of fun and look forward to the next time we will be recording together at Ocean Way on Music Row, a beautiful studio with excellent microphones and equipment. It’s nice to be back home in Nashville again, the best place to write and record for me as an artist.
