Just got off the phone with Ms Hill .She is a delight to talk with . She is all excited about her show coming up in the 23rd in Mt Eagle. This is some place up in the Mountains near Chattanooga Tn. where lots of Nashville Artist and songwriters come and rub elbows . I’m really excited for her but more than anything I want to get started our project together. A couple of years back we talked about doing an album together and I’m ready to get started .
Ms Hill has strong connections in lower Al. She is the former Mayor of the town or Greensboro Al. I think her family is still rooted there. I asked her to take me there soon. I want to get to know more about her and the area where she came from before we actually get into the record together.
I have done a few projects in my life but I want this album with Ms. Vanessa Hill to be a treasure for everyone to have long after we are gone. I actually want to do a RECORD. Like for the record books of time and Al history. In order to do that, I want to connect with as much of her feelings and experience as possible.
I actually want to control the entire project from beginning to end, from song selection to packaging to tell as much of the untold story of her and my Alabama lives as possible. I’m hoping for a souvenir Al. record and today when we got off the phone I feel like we finally just got started.
I got a show tonight in Madison and I invited her to stop in and tell folks about her plans in Huntsville. I hope that she can work it into her schedule to drop by.
It’s going to be a great project to do. Ill keep you informed. Join the mailing list and stay tuned. Once I Get the concepts solid and we start into funding. You’ll be the first to know .Imagine get in on history.
