Last night I ventured into Nashville to hand out my NEW stickers and to
see a few friends play in the Opryland area.
I was given a “tip” to go to the Nashville Palace (who sponsors my site)
to go check out David Peterson And 1946.
I was absolutely BLOWN AWAY with their show, when I got there he was
digging DEEP into the vaults of country and bluegrass music
and playing some so old most people think they are new!
Heck he was playing Tarnished Angel that George Jones cut
for Mercury Records in the 1960’s!
HE HAD MY FULL ATTENTION!
He also had one of the three pillars of country music..
A damn fine steel player in his band.
Right now I’m listening to his CD “Comin On Strong”
and the song is “Come Back To Me” which was cut by
Jimmy C. Newman..
And he used some REALLY GREAT session players on his album
I bought. He has 5 available and you can buy them by clicking
on his link above.
On steel he used Paul Franklin and John Hughey and Buddy Emmons.
I also saw Tim Atwood and many many more names I noticed.
He also has a young lady on fiddle from Illinois and she
was absolutely fabulous to listen to!
Another song that grabbed me here “Your’e The Only One For Me”
which Don Gibson cut in the 1950’s on (I think it was)
Lion label..or metro.
“Family Bible” was a good song he did. It’s an early Willie Nelson
“Neckties” is one of his own songs he wrote. I enjoy that one too.
“Rattlesnakin Daddy” I always thought was an original Jumping Bill Carlisle
song..I never knew it was older still.
So I learn things by his music..I like that!
I noticed he dresses in traditonal clothes for his shows as I do.
I really enjoyed having a few beers and honky tonking to his band!
I’ll be featuring him MORE in the future!
