Derek Trucks Guests On New JJ Grey Album


Georgia Warhorse
Guest guitarist Derek Trucks joins swampy, funky roots rock artist JJ Grey on "Lullaby," a highlight of the new album Georgia Warhorse, nailing his performance on the first take.

Grey says, "He's a one take person. It sounded like the greatest take of all time. He insisted we do two, three more takes but we used the first take. It was just awesome. To me, he's in the category of Louis Armstrong."

Trucks admires Grey's abilities as a writer as well, saying, "It's a real skill to be able to take your life and what you do and just put it to music where it actually translates, where you can trace those threads back. I enjoy that about JJ's music."

Grey's new album Georgia Warhorse comes out August 24 on Alligator. His previous album Orange Blossoms hit #4 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart.
