I'm Gonna Miss Her (Fishin' Song) - Brad Paisley

I have not-a-clue where the solo of this song came from, but I am so glad it came.  The Brad Paisley records pretty much got the session career rolling for me. I am so thankful to Brad and Frank for giving me the opportunity to play for them. I also thank God for always being with me when that Studio Red Light comes on”

“I played slide guitar, (lap steel), on Darryl’s number one record in 2001. It was recorded just days after 9/11.

“I own and love every record George Strait has ever done. As much as I had hoped to, I never dreamed I would ever get to play on a record with him. It’s always nice when your heroes are really nice people, and George was great. We got to visit about Mel Street, who he also knew.  George has recorded some of Mel’s songs over the years. The George Strait sessions were definitely a true highlight of my career and something I will always be thankful I got to do."
