I found out today that Bo Bice is releasing a live album in November titled, I Love the Road. The most unprecedented thing about this is the track listing:
1. Ain’t Got Money
2. Can’t take the Country Out of Me
3. I’m Gone
4. American Blood
5. See the Light <—- LOOKIE HERE!!! I SAID, LOOK!!!!!!
6. I Love the Road
8. Ain’t Gonna Die
10. Whiskey, Women and Time
11. In a Dream
If I didn’t make it obvious enough, the track I co-wrote with Bo, “See the Light,” is going to be on this record.
It’s always cool to get news like this.
I wrote that song with Bo in 2007, I think… I remember sitting in his studio, playing him the demo I had of it. The song was originally titled, “Tail Spinning,” and when Bo heard it, he told me that the chorus wasn’t very good (which I had to agree with him). He then replayed the chorus section and started to sing pretty much what ended up on the final cut. We both looked at each other and said, “Cool!” and then finished the song not too long afterwards.
I’m proud of that song and glad it made the record.
So because of this news, I went back and looked at some of the pictures I took during the video shoot for “Witness,” the first single off the album, See the Light (yup, was the titled track!). I found this shot that immediately grabbed me:
All I did was throw the picture into the Noir app on my iPad… fumbled around with one of the options and KA-BLAMMO! There you go. Cool shot, if I do say so myself.
I then thought about how I’d post that picture on Instagram (are you on Instagram yet???) and decided to crop it as a close-up. This is the end result:
Totally dig it. I really need to get in closer with my shots. The only thing that I’d change is the brightness on the guitar neck… but it’ll do for now.
In case you’re wondering, here’s the original shot:
This picture was taken with my Canon point-and-shoot. I can’t remember the settings, but I’m sure I didn’t have to do much because of how brilliant the lighting was there anyway.
