Larry Cordle has released the second single, “Sailor’s Regret” from his upcoming new album, Where The Trees Know My Name.
The song was written by bluegrass artist and songwriter Johnny
Williams. “Having an artist record your song is great but having a
songwriter like Larry Cordle put my song on his album is quite an
honor,” said Williams.
Cordle was thrilled about cutting the song saying, “My friend Johnny
Williams wrote this great song. My good buddy, band mate and banjo
player extraordinaire, Jody King, suggested it to me when I was
gathering songs for this new album. Being a former Navy guy myself, I
just loved the tale. The longing for home when I was overseas, sometimes
nearly unbearable, coupled with the great drive Johnny put into this
piece made it a no brainer for me to cut. Thank you old buddy for
allowing me to record this song!”
Cordle just received the 2020 SPBGMA Songwriter of the Year Award
during the 46th Annual SPBGMA Bluegrass Music Awards Show held in
Nashville last weekend. The eastern Kentucky native is also a
Grammy-winning artist, multi-IBMA award-winner and member of the
Kentucky Music Hall of Fame.
On February 15, Cordle fans can catch his performance at the Ryman
Auditorium in Nashville as part of the Tyler Childers Country Squires
Residency show. Every Sunday at 4pm, Cordle performs with Val Storey and
Mike Rogers at the world-famous Station Inn. He’s back at the Station
Inn every Monday performing with Val Storey, Carl Jackson and friends
for their weekly New Monday show.
