Editorial Reviews

GARY NICHOLSON .... You might not know his name, but you do know his work! A recent inductee into the Texas Songwriters' Hall of Fame and a Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame nominee, Gary has had more than 350 of his songs recorded and has won 26 ASCAP Awards. His hits include most recently, "Fallin' & Flyin by Jeff Bridges from the hit film, Crazy Heart, as well as recordings by such famous voices as George Strait, Guy Clark, Clay Walker and Delbert McClinton. Now, we get to hear the songwriter in his own voice. Texas Songbook celebrates Gary's Texas connection, in a collection of some of his best known songs, as well as some brand new gems. Born and raised in Garland, Texas, Gary collaborates with members of Asleep at the Wheel, Delbert McClinton, Joe Ely, Stoney LaRue, Randy Rogers and Marcia Ball. Texas Songbook is: Songs about Texas, co-written and recorded in Texas with Texans!

Format: Audio CD
I have listened to Gary Nicholson play and sing many times over the years, and wondered why his performing talents were never known outside of Nashville and Texas. He is a straightforward, soulful singer, and a killer guitarist, who - among the many hats he modestly wears - is lead guitarist with Delbert McClinton (with whom Gary has co-written and produced a ton of songs). Born and raised in Texas - which is a musical country unto itself - Gary has played with and written with EVERYBODY in Country music, and also Rock and Blues (his songs have been recorded by, to name a few: Alabama; Amazing Rhythm Aces; John Anderson; the Blues Brothers; Brooks & Dunn; Garth Brooks; T. Graham Brown; Gatemouth Brown; Mary Chapin Carpenter; Kenny Chesney; Mark Chesnutt; Guy Clark; Billy Ray Cyrus; Charlie Daniels; The Dixie Chicks; Neil Diamond; The Fabulous Thunderbirds; Fleetwood Mac; Vince Gill; Mickey Gilley; Emmylou Harris; Etta James; Waylon Jennings; George Jones; The Judds; Toby Keith; B.B. King; Patty Loveless; Montgomery Gentry; Ronnie Milsap; Keb Mo'; Tracy Nelson; Willie Nelson; The Neville Brothers; Stevie Nicks; Lee Roy Parnell; Robert Plant; Bonnie Raitt; Ringo Starr; George Strait; Randy Travis; Travis Tritt; Tanya Tucker; Trisha Yearwood - and this is truly just a few of the many - go to his website and look at his discography and be amazed:[...]). Everybody in the music business seems to know Gary - and it seems like everybody truly likes him, too...I've never heard anybody say a bad word about him. Do yourself a favor, and listen to this GREAT CD.

if you are known by the company you keep gary nicholson should be a household name.....but when you work behind the scenes as a songwriter or producer you are only known by that company.........."texas songbook" is a thematic cd of all things texas.......from the muscians to the material.........which could be somewhat of a bore but in the hands of this company of talent muscians its all good......the songs range from straight out country to gospel and blues with a little texas swing for good measure ..........of course if you are doing a texas theme you have to give a shout out to Willie Nelson.........it took a few listens to get me hooked on this cd but its been swinging on the cd and mobile devices ever since.....also i must confess that i never heard of gary nicholson but i knew of marcia ball joe ely delbert ray benson joe ely...etc........etc.........so how can you go wrong

Gary Nicholson is a Texan who's had a lot of success in Tennessee. His songs have appeared on the albums and singles of country stars Patty Loveless, Montgomery Gentry, Vince Gill, Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood, marrying the hooks required of a Nashville hit with the complex emotions and deep country roots of Texas songwriting. His recording career has been more eclectic, starting with California country-rock in the early `70s, blues-rock in the mid-90s, and a return to his roots with an alter-ego tribute to Texas blues legends on 2008's Gary Nicholson Presents Whitey Johnson. Last year's Nashville Songbook, Volume One reclaimed a number of songs he'd peddled to Music Row, adding a songwriter's expression that's rooted in first-hand truth rather than interpretation and performance.

His new album sticks to the Texas tip, but in country style with a band full of Texans and Texas-reared guests (Delbert McClinton, Ray Benson, Marcia Ball, Mickey Raphael and Joe Ely) playing and singing songs about the Lone Star state-of-mind. Despite the length of time Nicholson's spent in Nashville, he still writes in a native's voice, even as he obliquely notes his two musical families with "Woman in Texas, Woman in Tennessee." He celebrates the Texas character - tall tales ("Talkin' Texas"), independence ("Fallin' & Flyin'," from Crazy Heart), and the bit of Texas that Texans carry with them wherever they go ("She Feels Like Texas").

Outstanding album! Love the Texas twang! Much prefer the Texas music over Nashville pop country... - David Roberts, author of "Patriots of Treason" and "A State of Treason".
