Wednesday Video Spotlight: Stoney LaRue track-by-track chat about "Velvet"
Red dirt music star Stoney LaRue, who lives in Edmond, is releasing today his long-awaited new studio album “Velvet,” the follow-up to his debut studio effort, 2005′s “The Red Dirt Album.”
Although he has been honing his craft onstage for 12 years, the indie musician told me in a recent interview that he considers “Velvet” his first truly professional recording experience. Frank Liddell, who has helmed projects by Tishomingo resident Miranda Lambert, Jack Ingram and Lee Ann Womack, signed on to produce “Velvet,” along with Mike McCarthy, who has worked with Patti Griffin and Spoon.
Liddell connected LaRue with renowned session musicians and backing vocalists — including Liddell’s wife Womack and Sarah Buxton — and paired the Oklahoma songsmith with Nashville, Tenn.-based singer-songwriter Mando Saenz, who co-wrote nine of the album’s 10 tracks.
In this Wednesday Video Spotlight, Stoney chats about each song on “Velvet” in this short cut-by-cut clips.
