We are getting really close to being finished with the newest recording project which will be my #31 cd. This project took me in a total different direction with the song selection but we are really excited with the result. One more trip back to New Orleans for some final tweeking and we will be able to send it for mastering. Players on the project include Shane Theriot, George Porter Jr., Sonny Landreth, Johnny Vidacovich and Dave Easley. The title of the new project will be ” I Need Time”. Watch for a later posting about a release date.
It has been amazing how easily the works are flowing, this week.
About to head out to New Orleans to go in the studio tomorrow and start cutting new tracks. Can’t wait, got a bunch of great New Orleans players and we are gonna rock the studio. I’ll try to post shots from the studio as we have a chance to but we will be busy tryin’ to cut the whole thing in just a few days. Wish me luck and in a few months you will be able to hear the results. Got a house sitter so we won’t have to worry about Annie or the garden while we are gone. Have a blessed day!
Next week one of my favorite Nashville songwriter buddies is flyin’ in to meet me in New Orleans for the recordin’ session and then he’s comin’ back home with us for 12 days to write some new songs with me. I’m a lucky man to have the opportunity to have so much time to write with such a great writer. I’m pretty sure he will be inspired with all the beauty around him here in south west Louisiana.
