“It was an incredible experience playing on The Nashville Keys record. Probably my favorite part was playing ‘I’ll Still Be Loving You’ by Restless Heart and the collective groove-type feeling of unity we had at that moment. Breaking off into ‘Roseanna’ by Toto in between takes! It was such a pleasure to have been included in this project!” ~ Keech Rainwater, drummer for Lonestar
“It was great re-visiting all these great country love songs that I grew up singing and playing bass on.” ~ Scotty Simpson, bass guitar for Pam Tillis, Travis Tritt, The Oak Ridge Boys
“It was an absolute pleasure to play so many of my favorite country songs in this instrumental format with Becky taking lead on piano. A personal highlight for me was getting to re-create some of John Hughley’s steel guitar parts on Vince Gill’s ‘Look At Us.'” ~ Travis Toy, steel guitar for Rascal Flatts
