Pat Green Records More Songs He Wishes He’d Written
On Feb. 28, 2012, Pat will release a sequel, the appropriately titled 'Songs We Wish We'd Written II.' Recorded in the Lone Star State with his touring band, the 10-song set once again showcases the three-time Grammy nominee's eclectic taste in music.
In addition to songs by Texas guitar slingers Joe Ely and Lyle Lovett, perennial pop hitmaker Glen Ballard and country star Shelby Lynne, the album features 'The World I Know,' a 1995 smash for the rock band Collective Soul, and 'Even the Losers,' one of Tom Petty's signature anthems. There's even a song by up-and-comer Aaron Lee Tasjan, leader of the group Madison Square Gardeners.
"We hope our fans enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed recording it," Pat says. "You'll hear a few songs you already know and may notice others that are unfamiliar; which was by design. I enjoy spreading the word about great talents and great music."
Explaining his love for all kinds of music, Pat said it stems from growing up in a family of nine children.
"In a home with that many kids I listened to a little of bit of everything from country and eighties music, to the best of Motown and Classical," he said. "I'm just a fan of music, period. I'm beyond lucky to do what I do for a living and thankful I get to record songs that I love."
