Sorry it’s been a little quiet here lately. I’ve been busy launching a new business, a walking tour of downtown Nashville – a mix of stories about classic country & western stars with weird, hidden history of the city.

If you’re coming to Nashville, I hope you’ll let me show you around our amazing downtown!
Meanwhile, I’ve been listening to a lot of Countrypolitan records on vinyl (Don Gibson, Bobby Bare, Patsy Cline, Dottie West, etc), and that influence seems to be rubbing off on the latest batch of songs I’m writing. Not sure where it’s going to lead, though Molly and I have been talking about the idea of making our own version of a Nashville Sound record. Molly was in town this week, adding more vocals to Don Henley’s new album. I got to stop by the studio and say hi. We had a nice hang, talking and joking around. Don’s a great guy. In my downtime, I’ve been enjoying the new seasons of Breaking Bad and Louie, and a book called Heartaches by the Number by David Cantwell and Bill Friskics-Warren. Hope you’re all having a good summer!
Upcoming show with David Mead, Jason White and Leigh Nash! For more info and to buy tickets, visit:
Exciting news!! This past week, Molly sang background vocals on four songs for Don Henley’s upcoming solo album! Don heard Swan Dive on XM Sirius radio show The Loft (thanks Mike Marrone!), became a fan and sought out Molly for the sessions.
The record, which is being produced by ex-Heartbreaker Stan Lynch, is due for a summer release. Other guest vocalists include The Dixie Chicks, Sheryl Crow and Alison Krauss. Our hats off to Don Henley for having such good taste to choose Molly. We’re excited to have him as a fan!
