When I got the invitation to go to James Stroud's studio in Nashville I thought it was a basic tour of the studio - which I thought would be really cool. I mean the guy has played with everyone from Ike and Tina to Elton John; he discovered Toby Keith; he's produced a zillion amazing records you have in your collection AND has produced 130 NUMBER ONE songs. Not 130 "hit" songs - NUMBER ONE SONGS!
So imagine how surprised I was when I found out that we'd be watching him record a song! I met Andy Gibson on my first day of interviewing in Nashville and he said he was coming in to record an acoustic version of his first single. It was absolutely amazing to watch how it actually works as well as actually getting to watch James Stroud record a song.
I shot some video - so you can see too!
And this is from nearer where the musicians are playing so you can't hear Andy sing but you can see him in the booth:
