ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Former Grand Ole Opry and Louisiana Hayride performer Jerry K Green, who was honored as a Texas Music Legend on the television series "The Texas Music Scene with Ray Benson" (Season 3, Episode 23…in 2012), is still, or, again, writing and recording Modern Country and Classic/Traditional Country Music.
In his CD album “Now and Then -Volume 2” on Barkley Records, Green presents ‘all of the above,’ and Sixteen of the 20 tracks are previously un-released recordings. ‘Now’ recordings were produced in 2014. ‘Then’ recordings date back to the 1970s and 60s.
Track 01 - "My Plow" is a Modern Country ‘power takeoff’ on the 'tractor songs' of the past decade, such as Kenny Chesney's "She Thinks My Tractor's Sexy" and Jason Aldean's "Big Green Tractor." Written with Jan Buckingham, co-writer on Pam Tillis's chart-topper "Cleopatra Queen of Denial" and other Hit songs of the past 20 years.
Track 02 - "Dancing At 99" also written with Jan Buckingham, "Is a sweet song, but not for Today's Country market."
It is a beautiful Classic Country waltz in which Green and Buckingham relate the life of his 99-year-old brother as a young man of today. "Folks today are living much longer than Grandma and Grandpa did," and "Your hair can turn gray and mine fall away but as long as you are mine, we'll be Dancing At 99."
Track 03 - "420 Colorado Time" written with Nashville newcomer Winston Boyd of Waterloo, NY, IS for today's market - in any genre - a tale of relief from physical and emotional pain, found on a '420 Tour' in Colorado's newly legal marijuana scene.
Tracks 04, 05, and 06 are Traditional Country at its finest; recorded April 21, 2014, but in the style of the 1950s & 60s Golden Era of Country Music, when musicians were allowed to play extended solos on records. The pickers on this ‘Old Pro Session’ include: Drums-Gene Chrisman, Bass-David Spicher, Electric Guitar & Dobro-Pete Wade, Acoustic Guitar- Jimmy Capps (Musicians Hall of Fame), Harmonica-Charlie McCoy (Country Music Hall of Fame), Steel Guitar-Lloyd Green (Steel Guitar Hall of Fame), and Piano/Keyboard-Rodger Morris substituting for “Pig” Robbins (Country Music Hall of Fame) who was ill that day.
Track 04 - “The Love You Give To Me” written by Jerry K Green, contains four solos, by Wade, McCoy, Morris, and (Lloyd) Green.
Track 05 - ”Blue Ribbon Blues,” was written with Green's old friend (since 1952), Glenn Douglas Tubb, writer of Country Hits "Skip A Rope," George Jones & Tammy Wynette's "Two Story House" and "Home Of The Blues by Johnny Cash.
Track 06 - "Naggin' Women And Braggin' Men" is an ‘updated with additional lyrics and music’ version of Green’s very first nationally-released record in 1953 on Specialty Records. That original recording was made in the studios of KWKH Radio in Shreveport , Louisiana, after a performance on the Louisiana Hayride in November of 1952. Future Country Music Hall of Fame pianist Floyd Cramer played an entire verse, followed by future Steel Guitar Hall of Famer Jimmy Day on half of the chorus, completed by The Carlisles’ lead guitarist Roy Sneed. The ‘New & Improved’ version is 'kicked off' on acoustic guitar by Jimmy Capps, and features solos by Morriss, Capps, McCoy, and (Lloyd) Green.
Track 07 -"Bend In The River" written by Billy Large, is a "lost recording" from 1969, found among archive tapes recently digitized.
Tracks 08 – 17 were all produced by Bill Walker, from 1976-78, and include the four previously released items - two 1977 Billboard Top Country chart records, "Genuine Texas Good Guy" and "I Know The Feeling" along with their 45 rpm mates "Would You Take You Back Again" and "How Sweet It Is."
Guitarist Jimmy Capps and the late Steel Guitar Hall of Famer Hal Rugg were featured on several of those sessions.
Green's song "I Know The Feeling" was also recorded by the late fellow Texan Dale McBride and is still available in McBride’s “Takin’ A Long Look” album, online at GMV Nashville as well as iTunes and Amazon.

Track 17 – “I Know The Feeling” was written by Jerry K Green. A Billboard Top Country Single in October, 1977.
Track 18 - “The World Keep Turning” was written by Jerry K Green and is Green's tribute to the 'World' songs of the 60s, their artists and writers. "Make The World Go Away" by Eddy Arnold, written by Hank Cochran; "Turn The World Around" by Eddy Arnold, written by Ben Peters; "It's Such A Pretty World Today" by Wynn Stewart; written by Dale Noe; "Welcome To My World" by Jim Reeves, written by John Hathcock & Ray Winkler. It was recorded in 1967, the year in which Green performed on the Grand Ole Opry more than 40 times, including some of these songs.
The final two tracks are also from the 2014 'Old Pro session,’ and feature more solos by those 'Golden Era' musicians.
Track 19 – “To Please A Pretty Woman” was written by Jerry K Green. This version features Pete Wade on dobro guitar, with solos by steel guitarist Lloyd Green, Wade, harmonicat Charlie McCoy, and bassist David Spicher.
Track 20 – “Tripod The Three Legged Dog” was written by Jerry K Green. The original version, recorded in September 1966, led to his run of Opry performances, and has become his signature song. This version contains all of the original lyrics plus a new ‘bridge’ that answers the frequent questions, “How did Tripod lose a leg,” and “What is Tripod’s favorite song?”
The first 15 tracks are also available worldwide for radio station downloads at Air Play Direct dot com.
