Hello everyone! Hope you're enjoying the springtime. A few interesting news items for you . . .
Looks like I’ve made the Italian album charts!
I'm pleased to announce the release of Dov'è andata la musica, the new album by Dodi Battaglia and Tommy Emmanuel. Why? Because Dov'è andata la musica is the Italian language version of my song When You Go, from my forthcoming album The View From Here. (It’s also the title of the album.)
Check it out on iTunes:
Recently I was honored by my friend Dietmar Brandt, who included me in his series of guitarist portraits. They include some of the greats, like Chet Atkins, Jerry Reed, Paul Yandell, and many more. You can check out the entire collection here, as well as order prints.
Speaking of my forthcoming album, The View From Here, stay tuned for a rather large announcement in the coming days. I've previewed a few tracks to some of my fellow artists, and here's what a couple of them had to say:
- "To me, this is what great guitar playing really is. Today, and for many years now I remain a huge Craig fan!" ~ Doyle Dykes
- "This is the kind of instrumental music that bears repeated listening, that makes me reach for a guitar or harmonica to play along, and then reminds me of how good it feels to learn a new melody, find the right groove, and simply be a musician." ~ Buddy Greene
