Released August 28th, 2020
Rooted in Song is a collaboration of the best music in Americana today. Produced by the award winning Chuck Ebert for Cabin Record Co, the variety of songs gives the listener an experience of down-home delight. From the opening track of Frank Thomas Green's Nebraska, a modern arrangement contrasting an age old self discovery tale, to the country stylings of Jeff Clayborn and Betsy Walters' Daddy's Gloves, and the haunting rendition of Amy Reid and Jill Sissel's River Town, there is a song on this album for everyone. Writes Chuck Ebert, "One of the best albums I have produced in years. It's REAL! Full of heart, soul, and passion....a true American music experience!" - Grammy poised for 2020.
