Michael and Dan both have special connections to the rockabilly song, "Restless." Michael was in the studio for the 1991 Grammy winning session with Mark O’Connor and guests Ricky Skaggs, Vince Gill and Steve Wariner, and Dan was touring with Steve Wariner when this song was a hit on country radio.
Michael remembers: “Ricky asked me to bring his guitar rig to the studio on Music Row for the session. For the guitar “shootout” at the end of the song, producer, Jim Ed Norman, told the three guitarists “were not stopping and we’re not going back!” And it was an honor to sit with Steve Wariner while he worked out the twin line for one of the solos.”
“Boom Town” is extra special to us as it was written by Jennifer and her Mom, Reva Banks. Playing, singing, being at shows, and connecting with folks as part of her family band, Reva Banks and the Country Folk, was a big part of Jennifer’s growing up.
Original guitar instrumental, “McIntosh,” showcases Michael’s fresh guitar playing. Ronnie McCoury and Corrina Logston did a great job playing on this track!
Michael and Jennifer come together on banjos for “Lady of Spain.” Michael's dad, Raymond K. McLain, loved to play accordion. They don't have an accordion, so here is the next best thing… two banjos!

It’s a rule that if you are a musician and live in Nashville, you have to have a home studio and label. Just kidding…but not much!
It was inspiring to visit and play music with the artists who came to record - we appreciate them all so much.
