Wow – 2011 was quite a year for us! We got to play countless times for our dear friends – in BBQ joints, living rooms, pizzerias, bars, lakeside docks, county fairs, and garages – and we got to meet so many new friends along the way. Some of you came with us to California, some of you came to every single gig at B-corns, and some of you “like” everything we post on Facebook. We can’t tell you how grateful we are for your support because it has led us to where we are today: on the verge of a whole new chapter. So much has happened!
To sum it all up, River Road was recruited by a Nashville talent manager, decided to make an album, and – because of another Nashville band by the same name – needed to change our identity. After many long nights of discussion, we are now and forever JAMISON ROAD!!
This past weekend we were in Nashville with our co-managers, Frank Larry and Karen Clark, and we recorded the first four songs of our record at Larry Beaird Studios! To say that it was amazing is an understatement – – it was LIFE-CHANGING for us. Six accomplished musicians played on our recording, and the results left us breathless. The first time the music started – “Another Day” was the first song – – Jennifer couldn’t even sing for a moment because she was so close to tears. Laurie stood speechless, and Brent said he felt nauseated “in a good way.” It was a moment that we will never forget as long as we live. We are going back to the studio in March to finish the CD, and we hope to have it out in May 2012. We will post the songs as soon as they are ready.
We can’t wait to see where the “road” takes us in 2012 – – and we are so honored and excited that you will all be there with us along the way.
