Welcome to Prides Crossing
For the past year, in addition to a busy playing schedule, CCH has managed to compose and record eleven new songs. These come from the heart, “edge-of-country” tunes packing emotional punch, good performances and even a sense of humor, display the band’s diverse musical influences ranging from Traditional Country, Rockabilly, Tex-Mex, Country-Rock, Western Swing, Bluegrass, Swamp-Blues and a healthy dose of contemporary Country dance music. Although written by the various members of the group, the studio execution of the tunes gives testimony to the band’s tightness as a creative unit, bringing a cohesive identity of its own to the compositions. The sessions were recorded, mixed and mastered at Cove Studios, Rockport, Massachusetts during 1997 and released on Black Rose Records.
