  • Description

    New Compilation Featuring Award-Winning Musicians: Country Music Hall of Famer *Charlie Daniels* *James Stroud* (GRAMMY, CMA and ACM Award-winner; has played with The Pointer Sisters, Paul Simon, Gladys Knight, Bob Seger and dozens more) *Charlie Hayward* (played bass on the multi-platinum selling Gregg Allman album, 'Laid Back'), has performed with Dr. John, and has sit in with the Allman Brothers Band *Billy Crain* (has performed with The Allman Brothers Band, The Rossington-Collins Band, The Rolling Stone, ZZ Top, the Outlaws and the Henry Paul Band) From CHARLIE DANIELS: "Beau Weevils - Songs In The Key Of E is the culmination of a long held desire of James Stroud and myself to do a project together. We had worked together, with James in the capacity of producer which had resulted in some of our most successful albums for The Charlie Daniels Band, but James is one of the finest and most soulful drummers in the business and I figured we could get together, musician to musician, and come up with something special, we just needed a vehicle in the form of songs that would fit the bill. The whole thing started one day when I, as I so often do, was fooling around with my guitar and came up with the opening riff on a song that eventually turned out to be "Mudcat" which set the style for the rest of the songs I would write, that all lent themselves to being played in the key of E, hence the title. Charlie Hayward, CDB's rock solid bass player, for the past forty-three years, and counting, comes from the same school of the Soulful-Bluesy-Dixie Fried approach to interpreting a song as James. Now we needed another picker who shared the same type of "Downhome, Swampy, Rock meets Funk with a little taste of "Delta" type of style and Bill Crain and his sizzling slide guitar was just the ticket. Holla, The Beau Weevils!!" -CHARLIE DANIELS
