The last time I was in Norway, I had the privilege to work with my wonderful friend, Einar Moen (Tristania) on yet another awesome track!
Every time I visit, we always find a way to steal a moment to record as much as we can - because he basically lives a hop, skip and a jump from where I stay :)
This time, we decided to work on a cover called "Past the Point of Rescue" by country star - Hal Ketchum! (You can take a listen to the original version here for anyone who is unfamiliar with it.) I recently found out the original was by Mick Hanly, though :)
Although this original song is all countrified in all of it's glory (still pretty fantastic) - I hold it very close and dear to my heart.
It was the very first concert I ever attended at the age of 8 - in Dollywood (huge Dolly Parton fan!) Pigeon Forge, Tennessee!
I remember I was so enthralled with him as I sat there, listening attentively - enjoying my cotton candy on a stick.
As I get older, I can't help to think Hal Ketchum gets even more good looking! Weird? Whatever. I'm probably just becoming more like my mother everyday ;)
Mr. Ketchum is a writing genius, and I have loved this song for many years!
I was super happy to work on our own rendition of this track, and finally get to hear it finished :)
Enjoy it, below!
