Album Notes
Brian ‘Brain’ Harrison was the first person I met after moving to Nashville who made me feel like I could fit in here. He had mastered the ‘Everyday is Saturday’ routine, and he introduced me to the finer things Music City had to offer including how to enjoy a 40 at Prince’s Hot Chicken Shack, and where to get empanadas down Nolensville Pike after hitting the used music stores.

We recorded my album Blame Bobby Bare over at his studio, the Rendering Plant, and we were getting ready to start on its follow-up when he unexpectedly passed from a heart attack. It put everyone in his orbit into a tailspin, and for me, the recording process took a backseat to playing live until the desire to complete these recordings had healed.

In my mind, the songs on this album are all connected to Brain; either they were songs of mine that made him laugh, or were written after hearing one of his spit-take worthy stories. Loose Lucy was the last song I recorded at his studio. I put two ballads on there because Dave Roe said I needed something for the ladies. (Thanks Dave!) Brain's one of a kind vernacular, colorful phrases, and his take on life and how to live it are all here in these songs.

Brain had Hot Chicken Wisdom.
