about

This is an album of mostly covers recorded in about 5 days.

I endeavored on this project as a Christmas present for my Grandparents, but it came out so good I thought I'd share it with all of you!

The first song is an original I wrote on mandolin while visiting my Grandparents in their home state of Arkansas.

The rest are songs they'd enjoy or that reminded me of them before my summer 2011 trip to see them.

The cover photo is of me playing "Arkansas Rain" in Fayetteville, AR, I was trying to videotape a demo version of the song before we left the state.

The songs are originally by (or at least the versions I'm covering):

1. Arkansas Rain - Me (:D)
2. Angel Band - The Stanley Brothers
3. Brown Suits and Cadillacs - Joe Purdy
4. Fly Away - Allison Kraus
5. Precious Memories - The Stanley Brothers
6. Wash Away - Joe Purdy
7. I Saw the Light - Hank Williams Sr.
8. Simple Twist of Fate - Bob Dylan
9. You Are My Sunshine - The Pine Ridge Boys
10. Down to the Water - Joe Purdy
