After more than a decade of songwriting and live performances, with honors from the Western Music Association, The Academy of Western Artists, a Grammy nomination, and an Album of the Year award for 'Prairie Winds' with our group Pistol River, we wanted to write and produce a project more personal in nature. Although we began 'Runaway Train' with the idea of recording as usual in Nashville, we quickly found after a few tracks at Dwight Dunlap's 'Toys in the Attic' studio in Lexington, we could do the entire project locally. Friend and award winning performer J.P. Pennington, of the supergroup 'Exile' joined us as producer and musician and soon our collaboration created new unique sounds, rhythms and arrangements. Quickly, 'Runaway Train' blended a mixture of warm ballads and uptempo music, all supporting stories about friendship, growing older, life experiences, and personal beliefs. The results, as you will hear, are saturated with multiple musical influences from country to rock to gospel. Our thanks to J.P. and Dwight, along with Pat Severs, Cheryl McKinney and Katie Penn for their work over the past year on getting 'Runaway Train' on track. It's exactly what we wanted it to be.
