Doug learned of his nomination while recording a new song at Sweetsong Studios in Nashville, TN, “Parkinson’s:” “Thank you to the NCMA for this incredible honor…Tremendously blessed. Yesterday, had a great day at church then headed over to Sweetsong Nashville Studios to record a new song. Dennis Money, is the owner and producer there; he is a genius. Russell Cobb (The Hammer), fun guy and an incredible drummer. Mackenzie Nehring (Baby Face) is an extremely talented guitar player with a great attitude. Sam Hughes (Fingers) is a great bass player–shoot he’s a great musician. Josephine Michener (Sweet Thang) is one of the finest fiddler players I’ve had the privilege of working with. Cody James McKinney (Wildman)– there isn’t anything this guy can’t play; yesterday he broke out the steel guitar for me.’
‘We recorded “Parkinson’s,” a song I co-wrote with Hollywood Howie Garoutte, and in doing so probably broke every rule on songwriting, yet with these musicians and the magic of Mr Money, (BTW- he not only produced but laid down background vocals and keyboard) I think this song sounds fantastic. I can’t wait to get the final mix and master. The song is a first hand account of what it is like to have Parkinson’s and the stereotyping that happens because of the shakes and troubles.”
