What do Patty Griffin, Duane Eddy, Bobby Bare, and Buddy Miller have in common, besides being icons of American music? They’re Tom T. Hall fans, and this new record proves it.
Just in time for Tom T. Hall’s 75th birthday, producers Peter Cooper and Eric Brace have assembled the perfect cast to pay tribute to country music’s greatest storytelling songwriter. Gathered in the recording studio at Tom T.’s Fox Hollow farm, the group put their own spin on the Country Music Hall of Famer’s most beloved work, his 1974 album, Songs of Fox Hollow.
Indie label Red Beet Records has joined with the Country Music Hall of Fame’s CMF Records to release what is destined to be a new children’s classic, I Love: Tom T. Hall’s Songs of Fox Hollow. The album includes Patty Griffin, Buddy Miller, Bobby Bare, Jim Lauderdale, Duane Eddy, Eric Brace & Last Train Home, Peter Cooper, Tommy Cash, Elizabeth Cook, Gary Bennett, Jon Byrd, Mark & Mike, Fayssoux Starling McLean, and even Tom T. himself. The band was Lloyd Green on pedal steel, Mike Bub on bass, Jen Gunderman on keyboards, accordion & spoons, and Mark Horn playing drums.
