Keller Williams with The Travelin’ McCourys – “Pick”
For the brand new recording Pick (to be released July 3, 2012 on SCI Fidelity Records), singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Keller Williams teams up with Nashville’s beloved bluegrass family The Travelin’ McCourys.
As revered and successful as each act is in their own right, Pick is a classic case of the whole being greater than the sum of its parts. Recorded at Music City’s famed Butcher Shoppe studios, the album’s 12 songs – a mix of originals and covers – put a unique twist on Americana music’s long storytelling tradition, and the impeccable musicianship displayed on Pick captures all the heart and heartache of the bluegrass genre. But the songs don’t stop there. Williams’ unconventional songwriting takes on unsuspecting weight when backed by The Travelin’ McCourys’ emotive tones. Inspired by Keller’s fearless creativity, the McCourys’ flawless playing gets depth.
Keller Williams with The Travelin’ McCourys: It’s a perfect, albeit unexpected fit.
