 What an amazing week in the studio! Calling in the supporting vocalists – always a lot of fun! Unfortunately, we didn’t get photos of everybody, but here’s a good taste: Maura O’Connell, Brittany Allyn, Joanie Keller Johnson, Odessa Settles, and Bruce MacKay. Then, the legendary Curtis McPeake dropped by and added his banjo to a song. Thanks to all!

Andy May - Room for Roots

Haggard and the Queen

©Andy May (Swift River Music/BMI)

Andy: This song is a short chapter in my book of true road stories, dedicated to my late friend and band-mate, Tabby Crabb. Tabby and I opened for Merle Haggard and The Strangers – with Leona Williams and Bonnie Owens – in 1978. About that time, we also played a private event held for Kitty Wells, “The Queen of Country Music” and her husband, Johnnie Wright. I am glad to have been a little part of all of that!  (… more, credits, lyrics)
