Recording Session at Ocean Way

I have begun working on my next release, and I had the time of my life last Friday at a twelve hour session at Ocean Way, working with stellar musicians, songwriters and singers, all of whom were very inspiring. We worked on three new songs I have written.  I am not sure what this next album will be called. All I know is I have ten-twelve songs that are all me. I am enjoying working on finishing the rest of them, getting ready for my next session for the next batch.

I had not seen some of these musician and writer 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 recording engineer for this session, at the old Sound Shop Studio, 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). We ended the day with some background vocals with Monty Allen and Suzanne Young, and they did a beautiful job.

The whole day was fun, and we all shared a musical chemistry that was special. I began the day with B. James Lowry, as we started with guitar vocals and built from there. It’s nice to be recording in Nashville again. I started here at age fifteen, moved here at age seventeen, backstage and onstage at the Grand Ol’ Opry, and began singing demos on Music Row at age eighteen. Now, I have come full circle, and it feels so good to be back musically.
