See what RODNEY CROWELL had to say about his recent MPI recording session

Posted on Facebook August 19, 2012 by Rodney Crowell: "Yesterday I recorded with Justin Niebank, Steuart Smith, Michael Rhodes, Eddie Bayers, John Hobbs, Jim Horn and De De Richardson at The Sound Emporium in Nashville and, without a doubt, in the thirty-plus years I've been hanging around recording studios, this was the most fun-filled day of recording I've ever experienced. Which is saying a lot. I wasn't sure the fun Mary Karr and I had recording "Kin" could be topped---what with all the star-studded talent we had helping move those sessions along. Ditto the fun Emmylou and I had singing together for three months straight. But yesterday, with 15 guests who, at their own expense - for the purpose of observing the process, converged on the studio from as far away as Oxford, England/Roll Over Pass, Texas/Northern California (and southern), Northern Canada, Lexington, Kentucky and even Nashville. These good people brought something to the adventure that pretty much infected these great musicians, which result was some of the most inspired playing this particular creative team has yet to produce under the Rodney Crowell banner. This for my solo record which is scheduled to follow the Emmylou and Rodney duet record into the marketplace. To know in my bones that I and my long-time mates are getting better at what we do is all I can ask for. I love my job!!"   Rodney

"If you are at all interested in what goes on in a recording studio, this is for you."- Radney Foster

"Working with Steve Fishell and his class at the Music Producers Institute was a breeze. Having some folks who were fans and predisposed to like what we were doing around also helped with the performance aspect of getting a good track. All in all, it was a really good experience and helped us pay for our studio time! Thumbs aloft!" -Bill Lloyd of "Foster & Lloyd"

"At first I was a little hesitant. Would this work? But I realized that some of my best musical moments haven't been on stage, they've been in the studio. So to be able to invite interested folks inside of this creative process has been an unexpected pleasure for me as a performer."  Ray Benson, leader and founder "Asleep at the Wheel"

"I wholeheartedly endorse MPI and believe in what they are doing. In fact, I feel they played a key role in getting us back into the studio."  - Jason Ringenberg,co-founder"Jason & the Scorchers"
