Album Notes
This recent album of Emily's features more pedal steel playing than any of her previous CDs, and includes the pedal steel player's theme song "Ten Lonesome Strings" which she wrote about the pitiful life of Drifty Texarkana, who makes his steel-playing debut on this album.

There is also a lively tornado destruction number, "Tornado Season in Tulsa" performed in the swing style by Outside The Lines, the band Emily occasionally performs with in Northwest Arkansas.

The plaintive "Stranger On My Own Home Page" pairs backwoods bluegrass instrumentation with a song about state of the art technology, as does "Termite Tracs," the true story of an infestation in one of the recording studios Emily used for this album.

"Driving All Night," a haunting ballad written by Houston musician/songwriter Mike Sumler, is the only non-original song on the album.

And the title song, "Twang, Twang, Twang" describes how every whining, self-pitying gloom-and-doom story is just like a twangy country song that has already been written.
The song features the guitar wizardry of Nashville-based Rick Gordon, who also sings harmony on it.

Wow! Lots of fun!
I was riding in my car listening to my radio when "Tornado Season in Tulsa" started playing. It's cowgirl music with an attitude and a warped sense of humor. I had to pull over to write down the name of this artist, and immediately went searching for more of her stuff. I couldn't wait to share it with my kids and some of my folkie friends (many of whom, I found out afterwards, were already Emily Kaitz fans). Can't wait to catch her show live!
