As has been mentioned on the promo page and the Fan Forum, the new 8 CD set, "The Great Jim Reeves," features a bunch of pro musicians who helped us add new backings to Jim's timeless songs. We really did use some incredible players (I think I counted a total of 31). |
Anyway, among the pros we used are current members of the Grand Ole Opry band. Here is a very rare glimpse of one of my favorite singers, Gene Watson, rehearsing with some of them backstage before his appearance on the Opry this past Saturday night.
