2Country4Nashville is Joel & LeAnne, a husband and wife duo staying true to their roots and playing 100% Traditional REAL Country Music. This, our very 1st Album, has been a long-awaited labor of love & passion for Traditional Country Music.
We've got 12 killer versions of some Classic Country songs by legendary Country artists like Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Dolly Parton, Patsy Cline, George Jones, Buck Owens, Vern Gosdin, Johnny Russell, Ray Price & Roy Orbison. In addition, we've got 3 great original tunes that fit right along with the classics - Brand New REAL Country Music, what a concept - Now that's 2Country4Nashville.
Our title track, "2Country4Nashville", tells our REAL story of trying to play and keep REAL Country Music alive and well in and around the Nashville area, despite the Music Industry's "New Country" Machine. They tried to get us to change both our name and our music - but we're staying true to ourselves and the music!!
The "Last Cowboy In Wyoming" started out with an idea I got from talking with some of Nashville's top session players from back "in the good 'ol days" of Country Music. They're kinda like the last of the cowboys - a dying breed, the best of the best, still hangin' on to their way of life. I wrote the last verse 1st - about a REAL Country singer and player, then the opening Cowboy verse...LeAnne then suggested I write one about a truck driver, as I'd been a professional truck driver for several years...So it's really kinda autobiographical. We really feel like this song should be George Strait's next #1 hit!! :)
The "Wine Leading the Blind" is a song that was written over 30yrs ago by Larry Kingston & Debbie Hullett...They actually had George Jones in mind to sing it, unfortunately, it never happened. Debbie showed me the song and I felt like it really needed a 3rd verse to sum it all up...so, one day I sat down and wrote the last verse...We love this song - It's 100% REAL Country for sure!!!
We sure hope you will enjoy this album and that you hear our own passion in every song! We appreciate your support of us and of REAL Country Music!
