Featuring Aerosmith guitarist, Brad Whitford and Ted Nugent vocalist/guitarist, Derek St. Holmes are ready to get on the road and perform these new songs that flowed so easily during the writing and recording session.

“Derek really encouraged me, made the process really easy,” says Whitford of his lyric and songwriting. “A lot of feelings and emotions just kind of poured out of me.”

It was 1981 when Whitford, who had left Aerosmith, first teamed up with Derek St. Holmes to release their self-titled debut. Tracks like “Sharpshooter” and “Whisky Woman” carried on the stadium rock 'n roll style that made them famous. The album received critical acclaim and they did a successful round of tour dates before returning to their respective bands and shelving the duo.

Recently, the two friends found themselves living in the same town on the outskirts of Nashville. While working on some catch up time, they decided to revamp their collaboration. After writing a number of songs, the duo recruited bassist Chopper Anderson, keyboardist Buck Johnson and on drums, Tesla’s Troy Luccketta to record the album. Self-produced by Whitford and St. Holmes, the album was recorded at The Castle Studios in Franklin, TN.
