The Trishas To Go High, Wide & Handsome This Summer
For the effort, The Trishas recruited an all-star team to back them during sessions at Nashville's Sound Emporium: guitarist Kenny Vaughan and drummer Harry Stinson of Marty Stuart's Fabulous Superlatives (Stinson and daddy Welch were Dead Reckoners together); bassist Viktor Krauss (Lyle Lovett, Elvis Costello); fiddler Tammy Rogers (another Dead Reckoner); and steel guitarist/"utility player" Russ Pahl. Veteran engineer Mike Poole produced.
The album's title comes from a line in the album track, "Mother of Invention." Jamie Wilson explains, "That song is about what we do," says Wilson. "It's about when something happens, you make do and get creative to find solutions. Like when our drummer quit; we just brought drums up front and we play them now."
