Oates explains inspriation for “Let’s Drive” 
 

August 6, 2013, Nashville, TN… “Let’s Drive” the third single from John Oates new cross-genre journey, Good Road To Follow,
will be released on August 13. A laid-back cruiser written by Oates and
produced by Nashville guitarist and producer Tom Bukovac, was inspired
by Oates’ son.
 
Last
summer my son got his drivers permit. It got me to thinking about the
fact that I had never written a song about a car, and since I am a
recovering gear-head, I got down to it.”
 
Legendary
Blackbird Studios was chosen as the perfect backdrop to record. When
selecting the players, Oates asked Tom to put together his A-list band.
Those outside of Music City may not be familiar with Bukovac, but you
can find him credited on nearly every number one album on the country
charts over the last three years.
 
The
stellar musicians included Tom Bukovac on guitar, Danny Dugmore (pedal
steel), Tony Lucido (bass), Chris McHugh (drums), Danny Rader (acoustic
guitar), Kevin McKendree (keyboards), and rhythm guitar and vocals from
Oates, as well as, backgrounds from Wendy Moten.
 
“Let’s
Drive” is the ultimate companion to an end of the summer road trip. On
writing the song Oates notes, “As I got into it, I realized that I
wasn’t actually writing a song about a car, but more about what you can
do in a car…yes, let your imagination run on down the road.” Now that
sounds like a Good Road To Follow.
 
About Good Road To Follow
 
Unrestricted
by musical barriers, Oates has collaborated with some of the world’s
brightest music makers, ranging from acclaimed
songwriter/producer/rocker Ryan Tedder of OneRepublic, to pop band Hot
Chelle Rae, and country icon Vince Gill.
 
Oates
will release a single-a-month from the PS Records / Elektra Records
project. Fans can subscribe to the series receiving a new download and

remarkable collaborative experiences, combined with not having to think
about the album as a cohesive collection, give Oates the freedom to
explore his wide range of influences, and there’s no limit to the number
of songs that could follow. “Who knows, this could be a recording
project that never ends,” Oates muses. “I’m having more fun now than
I’ve ever had in my career.”
