ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Sweepy Walker - Nashville Recording Artist Sings About Cornbread Mafia and Kentucky Girl

Nashville Recording Artist Sweepy Walker is not just the grandson of beloved Grand Ole Opry legend Billy Walker (“Charlie’s Shoes” and “A Million and One,” among many others), but he’s also an accomplished entertainer and singer-songwriter on his own accord, recording and playing with many notables such as Willie Nelson, Billy Don Burns, Montgomery Gentry, Gretchen Wilson, Trick Pony, and Brandy Clark.

Now, Sweepy has written and recorded a number of songs about Central Kentucky and some of the people here. “After spending several months around the Marion County area, getting to know some of the locals, and hearing their stories, these songs just tend to write themselves. The easiest and best songwriting and storytelling I think I have ever done,” Sweepy says.

Producer and longtime friend Ira Dean agrees. Dean, famous for his wild antics and superb bassmanship in the band Trick Pony says, “I have performed and recorded with Sweepy for over twenty years. These are by-far his most impressive piece of works I have ever heard out of him. I mean, he has been spot on performing these songs in the studio. It has really made my job as a producer easier. As a friend, I am proud for him. These are really good.”

Two songs from the upcoming album have been released, “Cornbread Mafia” - a feel-good, good-time bar song about local legends Johnny Boone, “them Bickett boys, and too many more to mention” (a line borrowed from the song), and “My Kentucky Girl from Calvary” – a dark love-story that turns darker as this mountain tale unfolds.

As well as burning up the road back and forth to home in Nashville and continually writing and recording new songs, Sweepy is out and about performing them and many other originals and covers at festivals, jamborees, and theaters in the Southeast. Whether you see one of his solo, one-man shows or catch him performing with any of several local musicians in the area, Sweepy Walker will keep you in the palm of his hand taking you on an emotionally driven ride of song, story, and musicianship.
