The Positive Cowboy, Jim Sheldon In Studio For MCS Season 4 Tracks
Jim's Positive Cowboy character on the show is a perfect match for his personal life. What you see on the show with the Positive Cowboy is an exact duplicate of what you get when you spend time with Jim off the set. Jim loves those great hymns that the Positive Cowboy sings on the show, so it's only natural that he puts his heart and soul into every song he sings.
Recording at Daywind Studios, some of the finest musicians in Nashville were hired to give these tracks the absolute best sound available.
Produced by Scott Godsey and Engineered by Justin Kropf this band contains some of the regulars on The Music City Show. The musicians for the sessions include Upright Bass - Mark Fain, Guitar/Banjo - Ron Block, Mandolin/Dobro - Justin Moses, Fiddle - Aubrey Haynie, and Drums - Lynn Williams. Awesome Players and Awesome Tracks!!
As a special feature Jim and Daywind recording artist the Blackwood Brothers Quartet will be teaming up on a couple of songs this season as well as on a CD project.
Sheldon will be heading back into the studio at the end of February to complete the Season 4 Hymns project.
Jim Sheldon commented, "The music and arrangements on each project just get better each time it seems. We love them all but, we have really enjoyed working on this project, it has a variety of songs and arrangements. We hope the listening audience will enjoy this as much as we are.”
