Recording was a blast today at Zac Brown’s Southern Ground on Music Row in Nashville. Many recordings have been made here, including Neil Young’s “Prairie Wind” record, and most recently the studio was featured on the new Foo Fighter’s documentary “Sonic Highways”!
Koa wood floors, rustic walls – it’s a perfect recording space, originally built as a Presbyterian church between 1897 and 1903.
Today, Sam Bush, Dan Tyminski, Byron House, and Lynn Williams were in here playing their butts off. We cut the three songs I’d prepared, including the originals “Hogan’s House of Boogie” and “’65 Mustang Blues” and then we cut two more on top of that, so we’re sitting pretty for the next two days of recording with Barry Bales, Dan Tyminski, Adam Steffey, and Clay Hess. Brandon Bell, who worked for years with longtime AKUS engineer Gary Paczosa, is getting fat tones.
