LP1 was recorded at the beginning of the year in the Blackbird Studios in Nashville. The same studio ,owned by John and Martina McBride, was used by Dave Stewart to record his own album The Blackbird Diaries ,few weeks earlier.
Musicians on LP1:
Dave Stewart – guitars
Dan Dugmore – pedal steel guitar
Chad Cromwell – drums
Michael Rhodes – bass
Mike Rojas – keyboards
Tom Bukovac – guitars
Drea Rhenee- backing vocals
Wendy Moten – backing vocals

Dave Stewart talking about this band , gathered toghether by John McBride for Dave's album
On Drums – Chad Cromwell
Chad plays with Neil Young live and played with many others, including Crosby Stills and Nash. He has a heart like a lion and a motor like a Jaguar. He can go from 0 to 100 in a nano-second. He puts every bit of intensity he can into a tiny egg shaker as he does when the full kit is blazing. Nothing he plays is pedestrian. This man is mighty.
On Bass – Michael Rhodes
Michael plays with a who’s who of country music (Gretchen Wilson, Brooks & Dunn, Faith Hill, Randy Travis, Wynonna Judd, the Dixie Chicks, Reba McEntire, Vince Gill, etc.) yet his knowledge and understanding of everything from R&B to British psychedelic music is mind-blowing. He is totally rock-steady with massive melodic flair.
On Pedal Steel and Lap Steel Guitar – Dan Dugmore
Also played with everybody (Linda Rondstadt, Neil Diamond, David Crosby, Tim McGraw, etc.). Dan is legendary in Nashville and even has a song written about him called “My Steely Dan.” Dan is one of those quiet geniuses, like a crazy inventor who has that little smile on his face as he flicks the switch and the world explodes around you. Once Dan has switched on his instruments, amps, delays, and various foot pedals he is one of the most dangerous men on the planet. He hurls slide grenades at you and just when you think he’s peaked he switches his overdrive pedal on and it’s like being caught in a crossfire between Hendrix and Jeff Beck. He’s a Nashville tsunami wave that travelled from Sunset ‘69 in Los Angeles and landed on my record!
On Electric Guitar – Tom Bukovac
Tom, like the others, is wanted by everyone (plays with Faith Hill, Sheryl Crow, LeAnn Rimes, Gretchen Wilson, etc.). I know the reason why. He’s a thumping, slamming, rhythm machine that when let loose will leave trails of melodies and countermelodies all over your track, just like a gunslinger shoots six straight holes in a tin can. I can start any song and Tom instinctively knows not only which of his 50 vintage guitars to pick up, but hones in on the exact tone within minutes that will slip perfectly into place, like an Olympic runner lining up for his 100 yard dash to the gold medal. Tom, like all the guys, is so conscientious and respectful of music itself that it would be impossible for him to play anything that would seem out of place. Even so everything has a twist and surprises you like when sun shafts pierce through stormy clouds.
On Keyboards – Mike Rojas
Mike played with just about everyone (Ricky Skaggs, Reba McEntire, Patty Loveless, Hank Williams Jr., Wynona Judd…) and won the Top Keyboard Category from the Academy of Country Music for the years 2005 and 2010. Mike is one of those keyboard players you dream about having locked in your studio. He plays grand piano like he’s tickling under a baby’s chin, and boy is that baby (me) grinning from ear to ear. As well as being an absolute musical genius in every sense of the word, Mike is so humble and understated. It gives him a kind of aura like a country music Buddha. On every song we recorded, Mike was not only playing grand piano, electric piano, accordion, and Hammond organ, but he was constantly building a different plateau where the song could climb to, and when you got there, he would then embellish with a Hammond riff that was straight out of all your favorite albums put together from Dylan’s “Blonde On Blonde” to Booker T and the MG’s. Just in case that was not enough, he would sprinkle little melodic motifs in between melodies and riffs that stuck in your head for days. Mike would finish the most amazing take on a track and then walk into the control room as if he had just been meditating (actually I recognized that IS what he is doing while he’s playing).
