Muscle Shoals’ Kerry Gilbert Reflects on the Past with his debut solo album The Song Remembers When

MUSCLE SHOALS, Ala. – Kerry Gilbert, leader of the Kerry Gilbert Band (KGB), is celebrating the release of his first solo album, The Song Remembers When, a 13-song collection emphasizing lyrics and Gilbert’s vocals.
“The Song Remembers When is a stripped-down, laid back, easy listening album that reflects back on songs that have special meaning to me. I want the listener to feel my voice in each and every song,” said Gilbert, who has been performing in northwest Alabama since 1985.
The album not only includes songs covered by some of Nashville’s most recognizable performers, but also includes three original songs written by well-known Shoals area songwriters. The first original track is written by Muscle Shoals hit songwriter Billy Lawson (“Her”); the second original track is written by guitarist and instrument maker Hugh Banks (“Because You Love Me”) and the third is written by Russellville native and president of Crestwood Flash Entertainment, songwriter-producer, Eddie Martin. Martin produced Gilbert’s album at Brian and Luke Waldon’s B&L Studio in the Shoals area. Martin and Gilbert then mixed the album with Daniel Beard at his studio in Harvest.
The title cut was written by Nashville songwriter Hugh Prestwood and originally recorded by Trisha Yearwood. Prestwood also penned Gilbert’s version of “Ghost In This House,” which was originally recorded by Muscle Shoals band Shenandoah. Gilbert includes covers of Elvis Presley’s “Are You Lonesome Tonight” and Hank Williams’ “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry.” Other songs are Paul Davis’ “I Go Crazy,” Merle Haggard’s “Today I Started Loving You Again,” Conway Twitty’s “Crazy In Love,” Ray Price’s “For The Good Times” and Dan Seals’ “One Friend.” He caps off the album with “Amanda” which was recorded earlier by Don Williams and Waylon Jennings.
Gilbert, a bass singer, formed Mountain Breeze with former Russellville High School classmates at Northwest Alabama State Junior College in Phil Campbell in 1985. The following year the group released In Dixie. The group competed on The Nashville Network’s You Can Be A Star. The group dissolved in 1991.
Gilbert formed KGB (The Kerry Gilbert Band) in 1992. The band is working on an album of original music and they hope to release by late 2010.
