From the recording Red Beet Records - 2008
By Paul Kennerley (Imagem Songs Ltd., BMI, admin. by Irving Music, Inc.)
Paul Kennerley is a wonderful fellow. He speaks softly, loves rockabilly, has a bunch of fine guitars and sends hand-written notes. Oh, and he has penned a bucketful of fantastic songs. “The First In Line” is, we believe, one of those songs. But don’t take our word for it: The Everly Brothers recorded this, and then Emmylou Harris sang it with John Starling. We figured it deserved a more professional approach! So we brought in Jon Byrd to sing a third harmony part, and Jen played her solo, and Lloyd played his solo, and then it was done. And we brought out some Calvados and toasted Paul Kennerley. No idea whether Paul drinks Calvados, but it was too late to call and ask.
