May 16, 2012 at 7:06 AM (PT)
YESTERDAY (5/15), on what would have been EDDY ARNOLD’s 94th birthday, PLOWBOY RECORDS was launched “to celebrate and nurture the legacy of the original TENNESSEE Plowboy and provide a home for recorded projects that focus on AMERICAN music regardless of genre.”
PLOWBOY’s founders are ARNOLD’s grandson and musician SHANNON POLLARD, author/music historian DON CUSIC, and punk musician CHEETAH CHROME.
The first PLOWBOY RECORDS release will be a new album from BOBBY BARE. BARE is currently recording at RCA STUDIO B in NASHVILLE cutting a mix of traditional folk and blues songs and contemporary Americana with a band that includes BUDDY MILLER, RANDY SCRUGGS and other members of ROBERT PLANT's BAND OF JOY.
Also currently being recorded is an EDDY ARNOLD tribute album, produced by CHROME, that will feature interpretations of ARNOLD’s songs by traditional Country artists, Alt-Country and Indie Rock bands. "The goal of the tribute album is to raise some eyebrows by matching up artists from multiple genres with signature EDDY ARNOLD songs," said POLLARD.
