Once upon a time in Nashville music history, a few brave trailblazers paved a worldwide path carrying nothing more than their songs from the southland. Oh, but what songs they were... "A Little Sentimental - A Storybook Album" celebrates the songs and heroes of the classic “Nashville Sound,” uniquely represented by recording artist and songwriter Makky Kaylor and an elite group of Nashville musicians. Each of the 14 Sentimental tracks is an adventurous chapter in an important era in music history.
This album of classic songs characterizes the romantic era of southern music from the 1950s through the 1960s when country music took a slightly more sophisticated approach and reached global audiences with the addition of strings, full backing vocals, memorable melodies and smooth southern song stylists. Songs by such country-pop pioneers as Eddy Arnold, Jim Reeves, Marty Robbins and Ray Price are woven together with brief anecdotes and spoken vocal cameos by Arnold as well as Robbins' son, Ronny. A couple of Makky Kaylor's soon-to-be standards round out the song list perfectly.
"A Little Sentimental" is a refreshing option for country music lovers nostalgic for romantic, refined southern music. Kaylor calls the album “Dress up and take your baby to town music.” It is a wonderful, historic foundation of southern music with a fresh coat of paint applied by a gifted artist, Makky Kaylor, along with some of Nashville's most talented musicians.
