Jones covers all guitar, mandolin, bass, and drum parts. He also handles the vocal parts with the exception of one, which is covered by Heidi Douglas. The other special guests included on the project are Ron Stewart on fiddle and banjo, and Matt Leadbetter on resonator guitar.

The project can be previewed and ordered on Randy’s site, and he has prepared this video preview as well.
