Little Big Town on TV this week

I just got back from taping a couple of shows with Little Big Town out in L.A. The Talk and Conan aired on Tuesday March 30th and the Late Late show with Craig Ferguson we taped will air in May or maybe a little sooner. We had a great time.

the Talk:

Conan:

On Conan, I got to use an amazing 65 Amps Apollo amp with two of their 15 inch speaker cabinets. I’m totally lusting after a rig just like to use with Little Big Town.

Daisy Cutter

I’m really excited about this project. It’s been years since I’ve played in a true band. We all write together and have an equal say in what goes down. Kind of a novel concept for me since I’ve been a sideman for so many years. Jonathan Singleton and Brad Tursi swap off singing and they are both incredible song writers and guitarists. Steve Sinatra is a total beast on drums. We played together all of last year with LIttle Big Town. I really honored to be part this funky mess. We’ve been working on an EP and plan on eventually booking some shows.
