David Ferguson Releases Bonus Track “White Dove” Featuring Dan Auerbach and Ronnie McCoury
David Ferguson Releases Bonus Track “White Dove” Featuring Dan Auerbach and Ronnie McCoury From-Much Loved 2021 Album Nashville No More
If you follow Festy GoNuts, you are well aware that we have a passion for the bluegrass genre of music. So, our ears perked up when this press release came across our desk today. New to us, but clearly an old soul to the scene, David Ferguson has been at the heart of producing music for some of our favorites. Last September, he produced his own album – Nashville No More – and today he released a bonus song #11 featuring Ronnie McCoury and Dan Auerbach. So – yeah, we’re admittedly a little late to the game, but we’re on board now!
The About Section usually resides at the bottom of a Press Release – but I’m bumping it to the top to catch your attention so you know exactly the caliber of professionalism we are talking about today:
About David Ferguson (in the words of Sturgill Simpson): “The Ferg is a bonafide card-carrying legendary hillbilly genius and when he talks you better shut up and listen. He’s played bass for Jimmy Martin, chopped tape for Cowboy Jack Clement, been called a dear friend by Johnny Cash and John Prine, recorded every one of your damn heroes at least twice, and he’s forgotten more about music, specifically recording music, than you’ll ever know in your entire existence. So…next time you start thinking your shit doesn’t stink just stop and look in the mirror and ask yourself, ‘I’m sorry and you’ll have to excuse me but…is your name David Ferguson?’”
