George Benson wanted to try something completely different. He signed with a European label (a first for him), and took them up on a suggestion of what kind of new album to make.
He went to Nashville to work with some serious "pickers." He said "you could really get off track with them as they're so good." But he knew he had to stay the course and be true to the rock n roll legends he was going to cover - Fats Domino and Chuck Berry.
The result? His latest album, "Walking to New Orleans," on Provogue/Mascot.
