Guitarist Zach Nugent recruited bluegrass legend Peter Rowan to contribute to his new single, “Some Place I Call Home.” The song, Nugent’s first original, can be heard exclusively via JamBase below ahead of its official release tomorrow (Friday, July 29).

“Some Place I Call Home” is featured on Nugent’s forthcoming studio album, Good So Far, which arrives in early September. The former Melvin Seals & JGB guitarist recorded the nine-track LP with Ben Collette (Phish, Trey Anastasio) at the Tank in Burlington, Vermont this past January. Good So Far features Zach’s first foray into original music as he wrote all but one of the songs on the album.

Peter Rowan is one of many guests who contributed to Good So Far. Nugent is also joined on the LP by musical guests John Popper (Blues Traveler), Cindy Cashdollar (Bob Dylan), Russ Lawton (Trey Anastasio Band), Ray Paczkowski (Trey Anastasio Band), Jackie LaBranch (Jerry Garcia Band), Cheryl Rucker (JGB), Sunshine Garcia Becker (Furthur), Josh Weinstein (Kat Wright), Matt Schrag (Dojo) and Cotter Ellis (Swimmer). “Some Place I Call Home” features Rowan, Nugent, Cashdollar on dobro, Lawton on drums, Paczkowski on keys and Weinstein on bass.

Zach recorded a bunch of the album using Jerry Garcia’s Wolf guitar. Good So Far will mark the instrument’s first appearance on a studio release since the 1978 Grateful Dead album Shakedown Street.

“Recording ‘Some Place I Call Home’ with Peter was effortless and such a moving experience,” Nugent told JamBase. “The instant that I heard his raw take, I knew that it was exactly what the song needed, and even more special than I hoped it would be. Peter took a liberty or two to throw in some classic Rowan-isms, and for me, they tie the whole tune together.”
