This collection of songs came about after performing an ‘in the round’ writer’s show with Ellen Britton, Michael Johnson and Don Potter at the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, Tennessee. The night seemed to have such a ‘smooth’ flavor to it that I thought these songs would make a great starting point for the torch CD I had wanted to make for some time.

Special thanks: To Wayne for his great ears; to Don, Vince, Paul, and Mike for their incredible musicianship; to the songwriters for saying it just right; and to Dave Durham for his ‘velvet’ introduction over twenty years ago. To all my dear Nashville friends who affirmed and blessed my “going home” to Mississippi for the next leg of the journey… may our sense of community stay strong across the miles and years…

I hope this album will make you want to turn the lights down low, pour a glass of good wine, and dance around the room with someone you love…
