Robben Ford Announces New Album and US Tour Dates

For his new album A Day In Nashville, guitarist Robben Ford and his band spent a day in the Music City studio Sound Kitchen, invited some friends and recorded seven new songs penned by Ford, along with his version of “Poor Kelly Blues” from Maceo Merriweather and “Cut You Loose”, first recorded by James Cotton. The album is due out March 4 via Mascot Label Group/Provogue.

The follow up to 2013’s acclaimed Bringing It Back Home, A Day in Nashville was originally planned as a live album to be recorded during his 2013 European tour. Inspired to write some new music, Robben instead decided to challenge himself and his band by doing something he’s never done before in his 40-plus year career: recording an album live in the studio, in one session.

“We had a great experience,” says Robben, who was joined by guitarist Audley Freed, keyboardist Ricky Peterson, bassist Brian Allen, drummer Wes Little and trombonist Barry Green. “We decided to make the record in a controlled environment, but treat it like a live show.”

Robben and his band will be on tour throughout 2014.
