The new CD, The LOUD album, is at the duplication plant!

On keyboards: We're getting my amazing (and fun) friend Bob Malone for 3-4 songs. Bob travels the world both as a solo act and as a member of John Fogerty's band. Back before he was so famous, we used to gig and even write songs together (remember "We Don't Need a Walmart?").

On telecaster: Erik Halbig, who I know from 20+ years ago (we used to teach together at the National Guitar Workshop), will be spicing things up with some hot country…
