David Ferguson, a Grammy-winning engineer, composer and studio owner, is stepping from behind the boards and in front of the mic and releasing his own new album, Nashville No More, on Sept. 3.
Ferguson has collaborated with the likes of Johnny Cash, John Prine, Sturgill Simpson, Cowboy Jack Clement, Charley Pride, Eddy Arnold, U2, and many more. Now he’s trying on the role of a recording artist.
The Fat Possum Records project features ten songs, and a preview track from the album, the Pat McLaughlin-penned “Knocking Around Nashville,” was recently released ahead of the new collection. Ferguson recruited plenty of friends to contribute to the new album, including bluegrass power couple Sierra Hull and Justin Moses, who lend their voice and instrumental prowess to album closer “Hard Times Come Again No More.” Margo Price jumps in on “Chardonnay,” and Jerry Douglas, Stuart Duncan, Béla Fleck, and Tim O’Brien also play on the album, as well as Mark Howard, Billy Sanford, and Kenny Vaughan.
“I’m so used to doing something and then moving on to the next thing, but I think it’s going to be neat to have a record come out,” Ferguson says. “The hardest thing to do is doing a record on yourself. You’ve got to learn how to listen to it like you’re listening to somebody else. Man, that takes gumption.”
