“I thought it might be now or never,” laughs the prolific Lauderdale, who’s collaborated with Dr. Ralph Stanley, Buddy Miller, Buddy Miller, Elvis Costello, Robert Hunter, Donna the Buffalo, Rodney Crowell and the North Mississippi All Stars. “They’d been saying you need to come down here and make a record, but other things kept coming up. Suddenly, my schedule was open – and that’s right where I was supposed to be.”
It’s been a few years since Lauderdale focused on the hard stuff of North Hollywood’s Palomino Club – after sojourns into bluegrass, Southern soul, jam band bursts, lean rock and yes, Americana. Divine intervention or not, This Changes Everything shows Lauderdale as one of the dynamic forces who’s shaped the last thirty years of modern country – including 14 George Strait cuts (“Where The Sidewalk Ends,” “Don’t Make Me Come Over There,” “We Shouldn’t Be Doing This,” which appears here), a Patty Loveless/George Jones CMA Awards winner (“You Don’t Seem To Miss Me”), a Mark Chesnutt chart-topper (“Gotta Get A Life”) and a Dixie Chicks raver (“Hole In My Head”). – as well as this thing they call “Americana.”
Working with sometime Steve Earle & the Dukes and fulltime Masterson guitar Chris Masterson and Cory Morrow vet John Carroll on guitars, Asleep at the Wheel cornerstone Floyd Domino on piano, Willie Nelson & Family’s Kevin Smith on bass, Heybale and Whitney Rose regular Tom Lewis on drums and fiddle from Western Swing Hall of Famer/solo artist Bobby Flores and Faron Young to Lee Ann Womack regular Hank Singer, producer Detamore took almost a dozen songs and created a template for the kind of honest to God country people who know the difference from the first swinging note of “This Changes Everything.”
“The classic country style was something I really wanted to return to,” explains Lauderdale. “I felt a calling for it, and these songs felt right. It’s something a band could be playing when you went to a Texas dance hall like Gruene Hall, the Continental Club, or any country bar in the world. You could hear it playing on the jukebox, or the band. And it’s not something you hear a lot of these days.
