I met @raylandishere at a charity concert we did together where we played Bob Dylan covers at The Ryman Auditorium in our respective home of Nashville. I knew his father, legendary steel guitar player Bucky Baxter, from making studio magic and hanging out in honky tonks with him. He hipped me to his Son’s music and i became a fan from afar. When we met that night at The Ryman, i felt a magnetic pull that i don’t get that often, and blurted out “We should do some music together”. Most of the time that is a rhetorical “industry” statement that’s as common upon meeting a fellow musician as “nice to meet you”. But Rayland called me up and sent me a bunch of demos that i flipped over and... well.. here we are. This is a really great record, full of really great artists collaborating (@nickbockrath from @cagetheelephant on guitar, @strangeamerica From @drdogmusic on drums, @erroneousambergris From, well, everybody, on keys, yours truly on bass and production, and so many more) , while a really great time was had in the process of doing it. Congrats on your new baby coming out today, Ray Ray. I love you buddy. Everyone go to his page and go get this record. It’s a beauty.
