Cottonwood Lullaby is one of those projects that I kept saying I would eventually get around to. Well my friends finally pestered me (with nothing but love, of course) into doing it. Now I wish that I had done this years ago. This is a work of love, very personal to me. Cleansing would be a good way to describe it, not to mention that I had a ball making it. All songs on Cottonwood Lullaby are original acoustic fingerstyle songs that were recorded with no overdubs, autotuning, or other digital'fixes' with the exception of Lacie Lynn. I played all instruments on Lacie Lynn except bass which was most tastefully and graciously provided by Mr. Phil Matthews. Oh, and the insect chorus on Just That Blue is courtesy of The Backyard Cricket and Cicada Tabernacle Choir recorded very late one summer night in my backyard in Jacksonville, Alabama.
