                      FRIENDS I’VE PLAYED MUSIC WITH.....













  ( 5/ 7/ 10 - after a sold out show at the Royal Albert Hall with Don Mclean)

Recently I flashed on a memory of a moment I shared with a great artist that I once played with. I had almost forgotten! It occurred to me that it would be useful to my fading memory to make a list of as many artists as I could remember that I’ve had the joy of working with. These amazing people don’t necessarily remember me, but I sure remember them, and I don’t ever want to forget.

I was amazed to count 25 members of the COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAME among them!!!

I guess a list like this is what comes with 33 years of work as a Nashville sideman. I have either performed in concert, in the recording studio, or on television (or in all 3 formats) with all of these wonderful folks. I can’t believe it either, but it’s true.
