Thanks for checking out the 247th episode of the ETX Rocks Show. Today we are in Tyler, Texas to talk to a very special guest. Known across the nation and beyond for digging his heels in and keeping his own original sound in the sellout age of country music, Jonathan Terrell brings an eclectic feel to rootsy country, with no skinny jeans in sight! With his third full-length album in the works, Jonathan Terrell is destined to change the landscape of modern country music with a minimalist attitude.

While on a run of solo shows in England this past summer with a couple of days off in Nottingham, Jonathan and Tony were introduced by a mutual friend which led to an invite and opportunity to spend some time in studio together. Sitting around talking tunes, old guitars and favorite bands they found that they both loved Mazzy Star, particularly the breakout song from 1994, Fade Into You. They quickly decided to start tracking it out with a couple session players and worked in a short amount of time to lay down vocals and Tony’s beautiful slide parts, the remainder of the song was completed at Cacophony Recorders Studio with Jonathan’s band.
