Track 1-5, 7, 9, 11 und 12 wurden gemischt im Overclub Studio, Ville Platte (Louisiana). Track 6/8/10/13 wurden gemischt im Maniac Studio (München).

Eine sehr gute Zusammenstellung mit Schwerpunkt Cajunmusik, doch auch einige Zydeco-Nummern befinden sich darauf. Track 8 und 13 klingt allerdings wie ein Popsong im Cajun-Kleid.

The CMA’s are named “Country Music’s Biggest Night"

The CMA’s are named “Country Music’s Biggest Night,” and rightly so. Rarely do you get all the big names in one space for three hours. With drama high, and nerves short, this award show will send you through all imaginable emotions as a writer not only a musician. Really wanted to do something different with this look back at 2013’s version and not your usual, “oh this person won this and this person won that.” Let me start with performances that really shook me so much I’ve got to put them in three separate and I have to put my favorite performances in individual categories. "Face Melting," "Just Plain Awesome,” and “iconic.”

In the Face Melting category,” “Outsiders,” Eric Church. All I could think, as I was giving my neck whiplash, ‘'way to go all Bobby" on them (Kid Rock reference), nice middle finger to the 'establishment' and I for one stood up and cheered. The performance was so rich and loud and well rock n roll. Eric Church you just went to number 1 on my list. Day for The Dead-Zac Brown Band w/Dave Grohl. Ok we were watching Dave 'warm up' he was practically "i'm going to kill these drums and leave them on the street." Well he did, the song had a similar melodic structure as a trad ZBB song, but with a twist, combined harmony vocals blended in the mix and a tribute to the real Allman Brothers Band the last third of the song.

In The Just Plain Awesome Category. Red-Taylor Swift with, Vince Gill, Allison Krauss, Sam Bush, Edgar Meyer, & Eric Darken. So what can't Ms Swift do? Oh wait there isn't anything she can't do. So she put together a Supergroup and what a Supergroup it is. (take note all my "Americana" friends). Stripped down in arrangement but tripled in harmony "Red" went in an amazing direction. The song became some new, some really rich in sound, an amazing rendition.”Drink A Beer”-Luke Bryan w/Chris Stapleton. When I saw Luke and Chris(who wrote the song), do this at rehearsal I knew it was going to be incredible. With a lot of fog Luke and Chris and LB's backing band they took this song for a ride. I figure this is Song and Single of the Year for 2014.

In The Iconic Rendition Of An Iconic Song Category, Alan Jackson & George Strait, “He Stopped Loving Her Today.” As a tribute to George Jones, Jackson & Strait traded the vocal duties on this legendary song. Giving chills to the audience. There had to be a tribute and what better way then have two living legends perform the song.

Then there was Taylor receiving the Pinnacle Award. The world Pinnacle itself means "the top." Well Taylor welcome, be introduced/presented by what can only be described as 'the face of Country:" Rascal Flatts, Faith Hill, Tim McGraw, George Strait, Keith Urban & Brad Paisley (all of whom she opened for) with additional congratulations from Sir Mick Jagger (which brought a scream from Taylor and a tilt to Nashville), there cannot be a higher honor to to get an award like this (last presented to Garth Brooks in 2005). So I 'm sorry(no I’m not) Taylor is going to be around for awhile.

On to the Award Winners themselves. There are two that I’d like to talk about. Two awards to make note of; Single of the Year for "I Drive Your Truck." Lee Brice delivered some heartfelt vocals to a song about a dad losing his son in Afghanistan. Each time it was played on the radio, tears were shed. A well deserved honour to the writers of this song, Jessi Alexander, Jimmy Yeary and Connie Harrington. Entertainer of the Year. You had to know it was going to George as equal parts thanks and a tribute, but I can't hate to wonder if he was a bit embarrassed by it. A true ambassador to Country Music, don’t worry though, even though he’s staying off the tour circuit, expect to hear some new music from Strait in 2014.
