California-based singer/songwriter Dave Gleason is coming back to Nashville and will swing by the WRVU studio this Thursday, October 9, at 10:00am to guest on Music City USA. Gleason, a veteran of the West Coast country-rock scene, will talk about his life, career, and taste in country music, as well as playing some live music accompanied by his own guitar.

Gleason's third album, Just Fall to Pieces (Well Worn Records, 2007) showcases his Bakersfield Sound-derived approach to country music, mixing the classic honky-tonk of Wynn Stewart, Merle Haggard, Tommy Collins, and Buck Owens with the country-rock sound of Gram Parsons and The Byrds. Among the record's highlights are the haunting "Train of Blue," the Texas shuffle-infused "Take Your Memory with You," the Tex Mex-flavored "Neon Rose," and the imaginative instrumental "Campin' with a Cat." Overall, the music on this CD makes for a very enjoyable listen, and many of the songs are tinged with an undeniable country sound that harks back to the twanging tradition of the Bakersfield Sound. The record is further embellished by guest appearances by great musicians such as guitarists Albert Lee and Jim Campilongo, and steel guitar wizard Joe Goldmark.

So tune in this Thursday morning as Dave Gleason joins us for some conversation and some fine classic country music!
