Will I Ever Love Again
Producer/Artist Jerry Jackson delivers soft, smooth vocals on this collection of "Classic Country" and "Oldies" hits. This album boasts of 1 original "Country Ballad", 7 hit "Country" songs, 3 "Oldie" hits, and 1 "Country Gospel" hit. Jerry's voice is a cross between Elvis and Marty Robbins. Enjoy the sensual saxophone of Billy Gougen, the nostalgic melodic leads of Ira Harrell's steel guitar, and the walking bass of Brad Jackson (Jerry's son). Goose Goodrich laid down some hot guitar licks with his Fender Strat on such tracks as "Polk Salad Annie" and "Walking the Dog". David Hand on his blusey harmonica and Ken Howell's solid drum rythmn "rounded out" this selection of seasoned musicians "hand picked" by Jerry to create some great sounds for this recording. "Will I Ever Love Again" (the title cut of CD), written by Jerry's life-long friend, Dale Ray, is a country ballad that tells the story of a man that has lost the love of his life and is truly "lost in his confusion". This CD is a must for your collection. -------Bio------- Jerry grew in Macon, Georgia and began "lip synching" to songs like "Alley Oop" and "Cathy's Clown" in the 60's.
