Making The Record (Pictures)

For those of you following the progress of making my next album, I wanted to share some pictures from yesterday in the studio. We recorded at the Poole Room in Franklin Tennessee. It’s a really incredible environment for making music. These players and engineers are literally some of the best in the world. They cut 8 songs in 6 hours…and even the unmixed cuts sound amazing. I came prepared for two full days in the studio but it only took one. These guys are the unsung heroes of the music business and are certainly my heroes. They are the guys you hear on the radio but you never hear their names. My deepest gratitude to each of them, Lifeway Worship, and Producer Craig Adams for making this happen. We are planning to record my vocals and additional guitar parts in early 2015.
