ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
It was last October and I had just settled into my new place in Nashville, TN. I didn't know I'd only live there six months, but as proud as I was to have been born and raised in North Minneapolis, I knew I had to explore the Nashville music scene: the songs, the stories, the mystique. It had been a long day but I had to make my first move. So I called Roy August.

I had met Roy about six years prior when I was 16 and visiting Nashville for the first time, playing an open mic near Music Row. Now in his eighties, Roy had co-written the Oak Ridge Boys' "Fancy Free," their first #1 on the Country Billboard back in 1981. He happened to be in the audience and he loved my music. We kept in touch every so often through Facebook.

Roy told me to meet him at the Hardee's for brunch in Lebanon, TN, just northeast of Nashville. I ordered the fried steak and tater tots. We didn't have a goal in mind, just to catch up and say hello. At the end of our conversation, he pulled out a folded piece of paper and told me it was something he'd been working on.

"See what you can do; we'll cowrite it."

I went home and wrote the rest of the lyrics, changed some, added others, and put music to it.

Here's "Same Blues."
lyrics
People ask why I hurt so bad
I got what I wanted and I lost what I had
Rainy nights make the heartache slow
We were two lanes driving on a one lane road

I got the same blues I can’t shake
I got the same blues it’s my mistake
I’m walking in the same shoes, hoping they don’t break
I got the same blues I can’t shake

I could run fast and far away
Fool myself into working all day
But the fever in my bones it won’t die young
My gear is jammed and my body’s numb

I got the same blues I can’t shake
I got the same blues it’s my mistake
I’m walking in the same shoes, hoping they don’t break
I got the same blues I can’t shake

Driving at midnight gets me lonesome
I didn’t know love until I had some
She didn’t like my occupation
It was a drive away situation

I got the same blues I can’t shake
I got the same blues it’s my mistake
I’m walking in the same shoes, hoping they don’t break
I got the same blues I can’t shake
