Last of the Good Guys
"With beautiful echoes of the great harmony groups like Poco, Eagles, even The Beach Boys; One Flew South are the new kids in town," says legendary songwriter J.D. Souther who contributed his collaborative songwriting talents to One Flew South's debut Last of the Good Guys and who co-wrote such Eagles' classics as "Best of My Love" and "Heartache Tonight." Adding "It's been my good fortune to work with excellent writers and singers and these guys are right in that vein of turning good melodies into the harmonic adventures you hope for when you write these kinds of songs."
Regardless of the time it took for One Flew South to land their recording and publishing contract, they are no overnight success. Rather, the three Nashville based vocalist-songwriters have been involved in the music business for years prior to hitting upon a perfect combination and bringing back to life a band starring three superbly matched vocalists whose harmonies are unparalleled.
"From the first moment the three of us sang together it felt like home," said Chris Roberts. "We jelled musically inside the studio and personally outside the studio."
"There was something about the way that we all came together," added Royal Reed. "It feels as though we've found musical collaborators that were always out there waiting for us to come together."
"Sometimes things just come together," added Eddie Bush. "I'm not saying that it was an easy road to get to where we are, but now that we're here, working together has been seemingly effortless."
One Flew South teamed up with Nashville songwriter Marcus Hummon to produce their debut album. A Nashville-based songwriter whose catalog contained six No. 1 hits from the likes of The Dixie Chicks, Tim McGraw and Rascal Flatts' Grammy-winning "Bless the Broken Road," Marcus bought out the best in all three members of the group from singing to songwriting. The guys also teamed up with legendary songwriter J.D. Souther, to write several of the tracks on the album. J.D.'s notable lyrical ability is prominent on the album and the result is nothing less than an amazing album of trio harmonies and sound that the music industry has not heard in quite some time.
