D. E. Smith is based in Nashville and he's done a fantastic vocal and production job on 'Greyhounds in the Rain'. I knew it need a special vocal performance as well as some banjo and hot lead guitar. Ideally, I'd like to get this song to Keith Urban, who I think would do a great job on it. Dave played all the instruments. The guy is brilliant.
Australian songwriter, Brent Lillie won the 2013 We Are Listening Lyric Writer Award with 'That's the Deal' and his prize included a demo, recorded in Nashville. He collaborated with three Nashville songwriters, who provided a melody.
