I sang for my first recording session as a child. It was for Steve Elkins’ Traveling Car Tunes record. I remember it. United Artist building on Music Row, seeing the Nashville skyline out of the window, the headphones, the quiet, and how different it sounded to hear people sing to a track that you can’t hear. I was hooked.
In my book, any session is a good session. I especially love to sing for and with good friends, like the Higginbothams. Rob and Julie make up The Lovespies and they have a tradition of recording a Christmas project in a couple of weeks during the holiday season. Last night I sang “gang vocals” on what will be their third project, titled Although It’s Been Said.
