Through his performances on these newly recorded documentary soundtrack masters, Jerry Naylor pays tribute to the Rockabilly Legends and the musical genres where Rockabilly had its roots–African American spirituals and slave songs, Delta blues, Southern gospel, bluegrass and hillbilly music. Recorded at Patrick McGuire Recording in Arlington, Texas, with an all-star band, each track reveals Rockabilly passion like never before.
For almost two years, Jerry Naylor and Carl Stanley Perkins, son of the iconic Carl Perkins, created, wrote and recorded a passionate tribute to the Godfather of Rockabilly.
