Two great musicians from two iconic Southern bands join me on this evening.
First, Jimmy Hall joins me. Jimmy was born in Birmingham, Alabama and raised in Mobile by a musical family steeped in gospel tradition.
At the age of 20, he moved to Macon, Georgia with his newly formed band, Wet Willie, and was signed by Capricorn Records.
Now Jimmy Hall is continuing the southern musical tradition by fronting a new all-star southern rock band called Deep South. His soulful voice is richer than ever and you can be sure the best is still to come.
We will hear some of Jimmy's new music and discuss his long, illustrious career.
Then Tommy Talton takes his seat on The Couch.
Tommy Talton was a founding member of Capricorn Records group Cowboy. While in Macon, GA through most of the 70s, Talton was a studio musician recording with artists such as Bonnie Bramlett, Corky Lang (West, Bruce and Lang, Mountain), Gregg Allman, Dickey Betts, Clarence Carter and many more.
Talton continues to tour with The Tommy Talton Band and Cowboy (reunited in 2010), as a solo act in intimate listening rooms, and as a special guest with many other well known, accomplished musicians and bands.
What a wild ride this great slide guitar player has had and we will get a chance to discuss the good and the bad with him while listening to some of his music.
