It's been a long, tough and mixed up winter for everyone. The weather forecast for Nashville today and tomorrow reads like this: "46 degrees now, up to 76 this afternoon. Clouds and winds increase, rain late tonight. Only 53 degrees tomorrow, below freezing tomorrow night." A little something for everybody, the only thing missing is a tornado or two.
I'm in Los Angeles for a recording project as I peck this out and you'd never know it was winter here, up in the 70s and 80s every day, bright, sunny and beautiful.
Just before coming west I recorded a new album for Ashley Monroe with Vince Gill in the producer's chair. Her first album that we'd done was released last year to high acclaim and we all had a great week making this latest one.... lots of good music, food and loads of laughs. It's always a pleasure and honour spending some time with Vince at his studio.
My own new record is marching along although marching may be a little ambitious, more like ambling. I have three things completed and heading into the studio as soon as I get back to Nashville to put another in the can and add to the others.
The calendar says spring's almost here... we'll see.
