‘Living In A Song’

Brilliant musicians and Grammy nominees Rob Ickes and Trey Hensley are releasing a full-length album Living In A Song due out February 10 via Compass Records.

The mesmerizing duo’s work is built on the interplay and virtuosity of Ickes’s Dobro and Hensley’s six-string guitar and striking voice. Living In A Song features ten original tunes plus two covers, and reportedly will be a love letter to a bygone Nashville and focus on a classic country sound as heard in contemporaries like Chris Stapleton, Jamey Johnson and Sturgill Simpson.

Here’s a peek at the album’s title track, which grew out of their experiences as touring musicians. According to Hensley, the song practically wrote itself after a long day on the road driving through Ohio.  

More About ‘Living In A Song

Rob and Trey re-enlisted Grammy-winning producer Brent Maher for the project (they worked together on the pair’s previous album release World Full Of Blues). The three-man team wrote several songs together for this project. Additionally, Rob and Trey teamed with other award-winning songwriters to collaborate, which resulted in over forty songs to choose from when it came time to record. Ickes and Hensley made a conscious decision to focus on their songwriting craft and lean the music in a classic country direction, with some elements of Americana and bluegrass thrown in for good measure. Guests and collaborators include fiddle virtuoso Stuart Duncan and respected artist/songwriters Thomm Jutz and Lyle Brewer.
