In 2005 Doug Adkins recorded the CD Whiskey Salesman in Nashville and released to radio in the U.S. and in Europe.
In Europe Whiskey Salesman was #1 for 4 consecutive weeks on the Hot Disc Charts that went out all over Europe, Australia, New Zealand. As a singer-songwriter in need of a hit country song, that song gave a kick start to a slow moving career and Doug Adkins immediately was touring 100+ country concerts per year. During the recording of that CD he met a couple of the Nashville Greats, musicians such as Mike Chapman, Lonnie Wilson, Brent Mason and others.
“Mike Chapman who played bass guitar and produced the sessions became a good friend of mine and was one of the nicest people I’ve ever met. Sadly enough, Mike passed away year before last and is truly missed!
I also met Brent Mason (Electric Guitar) and Lonnie Wilson (Drummer – Producer), and this album “Dirt Roads And Fence Lines” marks the 4th time we have gotten together to make some Country Music together!
Brent Mason has the hit country guitar CD “Hot Wired” as well as being the most recorded country guitar player in history and having won CMA guitar player of the year 6 times.
Lonnie Wilson is the former lead singer from the band Bandana which charted 10 Hot Country singles from 1982 to 1986. Now Lonnie Wilson has arguably the hottest drum sound in Nashville, making him the go to guy for the new CD “Dirt Roads and Fence Lines”!
Check this link from the new Dustin Lynch song “Hell Of A Night”, where Lonnie is on the drums.”
Scotty Sanders has one of the sweetest steel guitar tones period! He has recorded with hundreds of Nashville artists including Charley Pride, Randy Houser, Sammy Kershaw, Joey+Rory, Trace Adkins, Dean Brody. Jimmy Carter is a legend and has a one of a kind sound and drive. His great reputation led him to work in the studio with renowned artists such as Toni Braxton, Dierks Bentley, Tim McGraw, Alan Jackson, Dustin Lynch, George Jones, Nancy Sinatra, and of course Doug Adkins .
“To date this is our 4th CD together, and I believe it is by far the best country music we’ve done together! I believe everyone knows that I’m country through and through! When you buy a Doug Adkins CD, you are going to get some great music to listen and dance to!”
