Roland's comments from the CD liner:
A few years ago I decided I wanted to start a new band. I wanted to play, sing and record some of my favorite country and bluegrass songs. I also had many new instrumental ideas brewing and wanted to realize them. So I purchased a small tape recorder to record tune ideas. In airports, cars, vans and hotel rooms I came up with quite a few new tunes. In November of 2000 I finally felt ready to embark on the new band and with regret left the Nashville Bluegrass Band, with which I had enjoyed playing for over 11 years. Three of my new tunes are on this CD, along with an original contributed by Richard Bailey and David Grier. What I like about this band is the freedom to work together on fresh new ideas and challenges. This is our first recording as The Roland White Band--I sincerely hope you'll enjoy us!  
-Roland
