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
Bass Guitar-Duncan Mullins
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.
