Irene Kelley has a new single set for release this week, a lovely, homey ballad for everyone who appreciates the ongoing transition from fall to winter.
Titled Come Some Winter Morning, it is another co-write Irene completed with Ronnie Bowman and Terry Herd, which will appear on her next full-length project, Snow White Memories, expected in January. The studio performance is a collaboration with The Kruger Brothers: Jens Kruger on low tuned banjo, Uwe Kruger on guitar, Joel Lansberg on bass, and Jody Call on cajon.
Kelley explained how this song came to be…
“This song got started one morning while in Gatlinburg. The fire was going and the first verse and melody kinda rolled out. A few months later, Ronnie, Terry, and I finished it up while on a return trip in that same cabin and its generous inspiration – a writing retreat of sorts.
Terry remarked that it reminded him of something that The Kruger Brothers might record, and offered to reach out to them and ask if they would be interested in playing the track. Terry, Ronnie, and myself are all three HUGE Kruger Brothers fans. Jens responded right away and said, ‘yes for sure.’ So, this is the result of their fine playing.
My friend and long-time band member, Wayne Southards, adds a beautiful harmony part.”
