Angela Dodson's debut album is a fresh take on classic country and rockabilly music containing 5 original songs written/co-written by Angela.
The first track was written in honor of Johnny Cash and, rather appropriately, all tracks were recorded at Cash's legendary private studio, Cash Cabin Studio, in Hendersonville, TN.
The album was executive produced by Cash's son, John Carter Cash, and engineered/mixed/co-produced by Grammy-award winning Chuck Turner.
A star-studded list of musicians are featured on this EP, including Kenny Vaughan (guitarist - Marty Stuart and his Fabulous Superlatives), and Robby Turner (steel player for Waylon Jennings, the Highway Men and many more). Mark Winchester (Brian Setzer Orchestra) and the same background vocalists featured in the original version of John Anderson's "Swingin" also make their appearances on the album.
More importantly than all the "whos who" of the album, however, is the passion that Angela Dodson brings to the album. As the writer, singer, and co-producer of all five songs, it is easy to tell her whole heart and soul is in each performance, from the sassy, rocking "Ready and Willing" to the Johnny Cash-era boom chicka boom sounds of "Lonesome Time" to the steel-driven ballad "Trying to Matter."
As Angela's close friend and hit songwriter, Beckie Foster LaBounty, says, "This album feels like a Saturday night at the Opry."
