Bio: New CD coming soon with legendary musicians Spooner Oldham, David Hood, Donnie Fritts, Mark Narmore, Chad Gamble, Bebop Evans, Kelvin Holly, and Billy Earheart.
"I think the main reason that Muscle Shoals music still remains relevant and still has a devoted following is because the music is real and the people are real- singers and writers like Patterson Hood, Mike Cooley, John Paul White, and Jason Isbell write about real people, places and real life experiences.
