ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Just in time for Tom T. Hall’s 75th birthday, producers Peter Cooper and Eric Brace have assembled the perfect cast to pay tribute to country music’s greatest storytelling songwriter. Gathered in the recording studio at Tom T.’s Fox Hollow farm, the group put their own spin on the Country Music Hall of Famer’s most beloved work, his 1974 album, Songs of Fox Hollow.

Indie label Red Beet Records has joined with the Country Music Hall of Fame’s CMF Records to release what is destined to be a new children’s classic, I Love: Tom T. Hall's Songs of Fox Hollow. The album also includes Jim Lauderdale, Tommy Cash, Elizabeth Cook, Eric Brace & Last Train Home, and Peter Cooper among others. Tom T. himself lends his vocals to a new song he and Dixie Hall wrote just for the occasion.

When it was released in 1974, Tom T. Hall's Songs of Fox Hollow produced two No. 1 hits, "I Love" and "I Care," and the album entered the consciousness of a generation. Here at Red Beet we decided it was time for another generation to hear these wonderful songs, so we set out to re-imagine the time-honored work. For a week in June 2010, Peter Cooper and Eric Brace rounded up fellow Tom T. fans and headed to Fox Hollow, the farm that inspired "Songs of Fox Hollow" and is still home to Tom T. and Dixie Hall. Over three magical days in this idyllic setting just south of Nashville, they recorded the eleven songs that made up the original Songs of Fox Hollow, plus a brand new tune written especially for this release by Tom T. and Dixie Hall.

The original Songs of Fox Hollow was born one long-ago summer, when two young nephews of Tom T. and Dixie Hall spent the summer roaming the farm and asking Tom T. a host of questions about the land and the animals. To the kids, Fox Hollow was a place of activity and enchantment, and pretty soon Tom T.’s answers began to rhyme. The record that came about offers kids laughter, melody, and lessons in kindness, care, and conservation. For adults, it offers the same, as well as a welcome window into kids’ thoughts and feelings.

Peter Cooper and Eric Brace have produced a gem of Americana music, a new classic for kids and adults alike.

I love.....
I love this cd,I had the original Tom T. Hall record but haven't listen to it for more than a decade.
I ran into this CD because of Patty Griffin,I knew about Peter Cooper and Eric Brace from a nice instrumental song with Lloyd Green on pedal steel.
After showing the original booklet of the Tom T. Hall record and the : 'The making of this Cd" I have to play this Cd for my daughters over and over again.
The song of the One legged chicken is definitely their favourite.
We even put the 1973 Vinyl on the turntable and sing along with Tom,I hope this CD can be nominated for the best...whatever for 2011.
We love....all the songs,Thanks very much Peter and Eric,we care......
