Blind Hogs & Acorns

Chuck Jones

In cart Not available Out of stock

This is an album I recorded about a decade ago. Simple acoustic versions of some of my radio hits. The album title refers to an old saying from the South, "even a blind hog finds an acorn now and then". It's an attempt at humility. Do I get credit for trying?

The album was recorded by Chip Matthews, mixed by Chip Matthews and Eric Legg, produced by Chuck Jones, Chip Matthews, and Eric Legg.

I'd like to thank my dear friend, Chuck Cannon, for loaning me his vintage Gibson HG00 acoustic guitar for this project, a guitar he eventually gifted me with. Thanks Chuck, friends like you are few.
