Title: Led By Love

Alan Rhody has followed a long and at times, a very solitary path as a singer/songwriter, which at times did not come easily. But it's been his own path, from his beginnings in Louisville, Ky to traveling and working for eight years in Canada and back again to Nashville, which he still calls home. With nine solo releases of original songs to his credit, he is still 'a singer-songwriter of unusual clarity and intelligence', as The Tennessean's Peter Cooper recently stated. His first solo album in 1981, 'Stop The Rain', independently released (pre-Garth, pre Steve Earle) on his own Headless Horseman label, hinted where the future of country was headed next. Featuring rock 'n' roll guitar from Barry 'Byrd' Burton (Amazing Rhythm Aces) as well as beautifully framed acoustic arrangements combined with poetic lyrics, it still holds up today . He has continued his success as a well-respected songwriter along the way with artists such as Del McCoury, Kevin Welch, Michael Martin Murphey, George Jones, The Oak Ridge Boys, Tanya Tucker, Kieran Kane, Ricky Van Shelton, Suzy Boggus, Toby Keith and many others recording his songs. Watch for a performance near your town! You'll thank yourself. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 'I've finally made a record that I love and will be able to live with for a long time to come. The players, singers, engineers and timing all fell together in a beautiful way and I think that can be heard so clearly on this new CD, 'Led by Love.' My music has always been hard to categorized and it simply doesn't matter hear. The glue is there to hold it all together in the basic tracks played by Rick Lonow (drums), Mike Bub (bass), David Ferguson (bass) and Guthrie Trapp (guitar/mandolin). The icing on the cake was getting Sam Bush and Mike Henderson to add their magic on certain songs. And the singing of Billy Thomas, Jonell Mosser and Vickie Carrico makes me break out in a big smile every time I hear it. All my musical influences are in the songs as well - ancient folk; new folk; rock and roll; and country. I truly hope everyone enjoys this album as much as we had fun making it.' - Alan Rhody, October, 2011.
