"David Wood Country" is CD #3 for David. After spending many years managing and representing artists in the Country and Rock genres it became clear that David was destined to present his own brand of "neo-traditional" country music himself. "David Wood Country" does just that. On this CD there are songs that rock, songs that tug on your heart strings, and songs that force you to take a look inside of yourself to see where you've been and where you're going. But, isn't this exactly what country music is supposed to do? This is the CD for which David has been preparing all these years. With "David Wood Country" - David has made his statement. Cowabunga ! The first single from "David Wood Country" is "Ride The Wild West - Cowabunga!" It's a Country - Surfer Rockin' song entitled and be assured - you've never heard anything like it. It's, in big part, the sands of Wild West mixed with the Surfer Sounds of the Beach Boys, Jan & Dean, Giget and the gang on the "other" sands of summer at the beach. And - summer of 2011 - what better time to release this song? There's one truth for sure - you won't forget this song and you won't be able to resist the temptation to join in and sing-a-long as you "Ride Ride - Ride - Ride." - "Look out for that cactus little Sand Bunny !" Cowabunga ! No better way to start the CD than with, "My Dash," written by David. Though the "idea" of writing about the "dash" on a tombstone is not new, there have been songs and poems written about it in the past, no one has captured the positive message that David has put on this idea when he awakes from his dream and realizes, "There's still time to live my dash." And that's exactly what David is doing with this CD. He is "Living His Dash." And, to borrow a phrase from David's prior CD, he's living it "Here & Now." Track Number 9, is just too much fun! "The Beer Drinkin' Song," was written by David over three decades ago. He had just returned from Europe where he had been accompanying an artist he was managing on CBS Records, Lacy J. Dalton. David and Lacy were sitting around David's home after their return from Germany and other European countries (and, of course, drinking beer!) when David suggested that what was needed was a 'good old American beer drinking song." At which point Lacy suggested, "Well, why don't you just write one!" During the course of that afternoon, and probably a few beers more, "The Beer Drinkin' Song" was born. Some time later, Lacy, Billy Sherril and David were at CBS assembling Lacy's next album. Finding themselves "one song short of an album," Lacy said to Billy, "why don't we record David's song?" Since David, at that time was still practicing law, Billy retorted, "What the hell did he write.... a legal brief?" Lacy played it, Billy liked it, Lacy recorded it and it appeared on her album. Now over thirty years later, it's David's turn to record it. And, Charlie McCoy's signature harmonica licks, which played such an integral part of the original recording, called for Charlie to again repeat his performance on David's recording. Any over-view of this CD would not be complete without mentioning, "This Old House" (Track 2). Neil Young wrote this song in about 1986 during the Farm Aid era when farmers all over America were losing their farms. Now - this song is as current today as ever when the foreclosures have disrupted the "American Dream" like never before, "... and tomorrow morning, the man from the bank's gonna come and take it all away." This covers only four of eleven of the songs on this CD. There are seven more songs to explore and experience on this offering of "David Wood Country." In these seven song, there are many more suprises, smiles and moments of tender reflection.
