All New Album – ‘Timeless’
From Joni Twitty:
We are so excited to announce that our Timeless album is now ready for pre-sale. If you order it today you will be able to receive it after September 1st. October 6th is the official release date for everyone else, but we want to make it available for our friends who visit us here on conwaytwitty.com so they can get it early! Just press the link and it will allow you to order right now! Just scroll down to the merchandise area, open it and you will find the new TIMELESS album.
This album was originally recorded in 1973. Dad and his band, the Twitty Birds, went into the studio and recorded 14 songs for the United States Armed Forces and they created a Navy Hoedown show and broadcast it on radio stations around the country. These never before released recordings are songs that were Dad’s hits from those years and a few that he did in his show at that time.
Tom Gramuglia with Country Rewind Records purchased the masters and contacted us to see if we would be interested in partnering with them to release this great piece of work. His plan was to hire a Nashville producer to enhance the existing album. I told him he needn’t look any further. My husband, John Wesley Ryles and I could co-produce the update of this album. He loved the idea and we were honored to have the opportunity.
We hired Mark Capps to help us do the engineering. Mark has worked with us on every project we’ve done for Dad so this was the perfect person to contact first. Mark’s father, Jimmy Capps, played acoustic guitar on Dad’s albums for many years so there is a natural bond between us.
My husband, John, sang background vocals on all the songs. John had many hits as a country music artist but made the decision to quit touring and do studio work. He became one of Nashville’s top background singers singing on multiple hit records, too many to mention. It is so special to hear him and Dad singing together! Their voices blend perfectly!
My sister Kathy’s husband, Tony Durante, played acoustic guitar on two of the tracks. We wanted to have Tony be a part of this special project. He has a degree in music and has played with orchestras in the past. It was special to have him be a part of this project. Kathy came up with the title for the album. Timeless was the perfect choice!
We also had some of our great musician friends, Ron Oates and Kevin Williams, lend their musical genius to the album. These musicians have played on huge artists’ projects such as Gladys Knight, Ray Charles, Dolly Parton, The Gaither Vocal Band, and the list goes on and on.
The enhancement we did made a great album shine even brighter! Dad’s vocal performance is stellar and I know this album is something you will love! Get it today and enjoy some great, real country music! It will become obvious once you have heard it why Conway Twitty is TIMELESS!
