Once again, John Rees, DeLon's producer and keyboard player on all of his albums, has brought together a tremendous team of Nashville musicians and singers, who contributed their great talents in a Nashville studio to help create this great album. In fact, on the inside of the album cover, DeLon gives credit to all of the many musicians and singers, who have played on all four of his albums and also lists the very famous Nashville country artists, for whom they have played. This, just to let you know the quality of the musicians themselves and that you will be treated to some great music and singing on DeLon's albums.
