Tennessee Girl-making of the video

by Kevin on April 10, 2009

       I wrote this song when i lived in Los Angeles. This was recorded in Nashville-Robert Reynolds and Paul Deakin from The Mavericks are the rhythm section, Pat Buchanon on guitar, and Bruce Bouton on steel guitar.    

         When it came time to add a background part, Robert, who was married to Trisha, called her at about 11pm at night. She had been singing all day, and was just pulling her car into her carport……..but she turned around and drove 30 minutes back into Nashville and sang for me for another hour or so. That was a little nerve-wracking…….producing that vocal! She is a class act…..funny, and has one of the most amazing voices out there.

Anyway, an Australian director (Ross Murphy)  and i drove from Nashville to Lubbock, Texas…….filming along the way……you might recognize some of the spots along the way. You can still request this on CMT and GAC.
