The First Tidbit

As promised, I'll give you guys (and gals) little sneak peaks at our new album. This first one isn't very juicy, just a few liner notes and things of that nature, but I promise that they will get better as time progresses. 

First thing's first: musicians. We used some phenomenal musicians on this record, and their talent really shows in the sound of the songs. 

Electric Guitar-Brent Mason
Acoustic Guitar-Bryan Sutton
Piano/Organ/Keyboards-Gordon Mote
Bass Guitar-Duncan Mullins
Drums-Scott Williamson
Fiddle-Aubrey Haynie
Steel Guitar-Paul Franklin

Now songs. We have, I feel, one of the best collections of songs that we've ever had on one album. We've got everything from a dirt country tune to a rocking Beatlesesque pop tune. And lyrically, every song touches on what we have been through this past year. The songs come from amazingly talented writers and even artists themselves, such as Jim Brady of The Booth Brothers, Wayne Haun, Hillary Lindsey, and, as she has on almost every album, Mom has written a few songs for the record.

On Life is Great... We had a few special guests (Daryle Singeltary and Vince Gill) come in and lend us their vocals, and this album will stay in keeping with that. I'm not going to say who we've got so far, but I will say that you all will enjoy it. 

This will also be Morgan's first album with the group singing on every song. She's come a long way in a year's time, and I only see her getting better. I truly believe that she is going to make a lot of you very proud.

Well, I guess that's about it. We will be cutting lead vocals this Friday and Sunday so keep checking in to find out more information on the new album, and, at some point, maybe a few sound clips. I'm not exactly sure how Blogger works, but I'm pretty sure if you go to my profile and follow my blog, it will e-mail you when I have a new post.

Talk to you soon.

Thanks Madison for the update! Glad to see Brent Mason on the project, along with Vince and Daryle. Sounds great, but then again, you guys never disappoint us.

Now, if we could get you to be our "friend" on facebook, we could keep up with the band on there too.

Hey, why don't you guys have an official fb page?
