all acoustic 8th full length CD album
released May 24, 2011
HONKY TONK DOLL
My Granddaddy used to play & sing in a hillbilly band in the Aiken, SC / Augusta, GA area in the 1940s & '50s.
He was pretty well known locally, but never was famous. He probably would have been if he had continued.
In the late 1950s, he put his guitar in his closet & gave it all up to spend more time with his family.
I never saw him perform & he never saw me perform. He died twelve days before I turned 16.
He was one of the best friends I ever had.
This album is a collection of acoustic songs I've written which all sound similar in style
to what one might have heard in Granddaddy's day.
Many of them relate to various characteristics of & experiences in the life of the traveling musician.
Granddaddy's fashion of song was rather different than what you're all used to hearing from us, so the overall tone,
mood & content of this record is quite different from the rest of our albums & from our live performances.
Although, for the most part, it's pretty laid back & relaxed, it's still very intense in its own special way.
I love it & I'm very proud of it. I'd like to think Granddaddy would be too.
The photo on the cover is him when he was a teenager in the late 1930s.
The only instrument I used to cut my guitar work on this entire record was Granddaddy's old guitar...
...the same one he put down over fifty years ago.
I hope everyone enjoys listening to Guitar Man as much as Tom, Dave & I enjoyed recording it.
