Album Notes
About "The Kentucky Derby Waltz":
The Kentucky Derby has been a part of Alan's life since childhood. Growing up in Louisville, Kentucky his father was a big horse racing enthusiast and two of his brothers have been thoroughbred trainers in past years. So when he set out to write a song dedicated to his hometown and the world's most famous horse race, it took a long time to get it right. The song was included on Alan's "Led by Love" CD (2012), but now, here it is in it's "extended" version with a great "weep no more my lady" ending chorus, from "My Old Kentucky Home" by Stephen Foster, which is sung every year as the horses come onto the track for "The most exciting two minutes in sports." It also features the mandolin playing of world renown musician, Sam Bush (New Grass Revival / Sam Bush Band) and the voices of Jonell Mosser, Vickie Carrico and Billy Thomas (Vince Gill / Time Jumpers)!

His music has been featured on NPR's "Morning Edition" and "All Things Considered.” He's also made numerous network TV appearances in the U.S. and Canada.
