In the spirit of the vintage country and western music I love so deeply, I’ve put together a single -- a digital 45--featuring two new original songs. One is a ballad of the wide open spaces. The other is a Bakersfield-style honky tonk shuffle. Both were conceived and recorded with old-school sounds in my mind’s ear-- sounds, already old then, that I remember coming across the 1970s AM radio airwaves late at night. And yes, lots of steel guitar.
