When Van Eaton released his debut cd in March of 2009, he had no experience with releasing music independently . His experience in the business up til then had been only as a songwriter who had his song "it's Just The Night" used as a title cut on Del McCoury's 2003 cd, which did become the biggest selling bluegrass album of that year! The one thing he knew is that he had created a solid Americana album. With Producer David "Fergie" Ferguson of Johnny Cash Fame, and Bluegrass Luminaries Ronnie McCoury, Robbie McCoury, Jason Carter and Alan Bartram of Del's award winning band he created his own sound , it wasn't traditional bluegrass, it wasn't country, it wasn't folk or rock, but rather a delicous stew with all the above ingredients mixed into a very tasty dish. The Cd "Blood On The Ground" started getting great reviews from critics noting the songwritng,the playing,the singing as an entire package. People from all genres were listening and loving it! Those who were lucky enough to see his Live Show, realized this guy has got something, and it is something good. With songs as strong as "Blood On The Ground" "Given My Reputation" "The Fire Room" "The Promised Land" and the crowd pleaser and sing along " All My Moneys Gone" Van Eaton has established himself as a Songwriter,an Artist and Performer who deserves much merit. Download a copy of " Blood On The Ground" at Amazon,Itunes , etc.. or order a Hard Copy from CD Baby, either way you will not be let down. Van Eaton can write an enjoyable song that means something to us all .. Enjoy It! -Jack "Muscle Shoals Alabama"
