  1. Hey, Matt. My name is Derrick Holcomb. I saw your article in the Chattanooga Times Free Press and I'm stoked about what you're doing. People don't understand that the old timey artists are going to be a thing of the past very soon. Wayne Heard is actually my grandfather's brother! I'll be out of town during the release party on the 15th, but I'm planning on getting a copy of volume 1. Great stuff man. Best of luck to you.

  2. I have been trying to find a listing for you ever since I read about your Field Recordings-Alabama in December's Living Blues. My name is Jerry W. Henry and I am co-owner/manager at Alabama Music I am requesting a copy of your album featuring Alabama artists.
