Well it’s Monday and it seems I can never keep surprises from you all.
I was going to post A Case of You, my Joni Mitchell cover from the WB 50th Anniversary cover song album but you guys found it. Then I was going to tell you all that This Way is going to be released as a digital download soon (no, not a single) and y’all found that too. Hmmm. I guess in that case I’ll just let you know what I’m up to.
I’m going in to mix the single in the next couple of weeks, which is really, really exciting! I can’t tell you the name of it yet but I can tell you that you may have heard it live before ;) I’m also going in the studio to cut 3 or 4 more new songs with the amazingly talented Tony Brown. I’ve been writing so much and I’m excited I get to throw a couple brand new songs down last minute. One of the songs we’re tracking that I love is called Carry Me. It’s a mountainy bluegrass-ish song I wrote with my good friend Ashley Monroe. It almost sounds like an old hymn. It will be fun to see that track come together as it’s really the first true bluegrass influenced song I’ve recorded for the record. Ashley and I are gonna try to make a little video for you so you can see what goes into a song and what inspires us. Maybe we’ll have it next Monday ;)
Take care and stop stealing my surprises already!!
