Producer's Notes - Keeter & Ali - "The Grand Tour"

Deer Lodge George Jones Tribute

You know a session is going to be good when you hear the band warming up on acoustic guitars out on the deck and the sound stops you in your tracks and you have to go outside and check it out.

That was the case with 70’s local legends Keeter & Ali when I heard them doing “The Grand Tour” through the barroom walls.

Usually I’m a pretty hands-off producer in the studio, but on one of the last lines I suggested a ritardando delivery on the word “mercy” and I was happy to hear that Keeter say he thought it “made the track.”

Here they are doing the song at the tribute concert in Portland:
