Album Release Date / Producer? - January 8th, 2017 / Steve Carr & Joey McGee
Genre? - Americana, Country, Folk, Rock, Bluegrass
Opinion On The Artist's Discography Overall Up To This Point? - Well, from what I found in my research, Joey has two projects that came prior to this – 2012's great Fades To Sun as well as 2010's Love Is The Way both of which earn favorable receptions for me.
Where Might Other People Know This Act From? - To be honest, I'm not quite sure. This album is apparently Joey's way of breaking into Americana, so you probably haven't heard the name before. I actually only knew this was out due to reader, Robert notifying us in a comments section.
Is There Any Sort Of Event Surrounding the Making Of This Album? - Per Joey, “the spark of inspiration for Terlingua Taproot stems from conversations I had with a friend – a brassy artist-rancher type – who owns a place on the outskirts of Austin named Terlingua. He challenged some of my writing (something like “this sucks” was said), and that became the splash of cold water I needed at the time. We should all be so blessed to have such an honest friend!”
