Winter's Night Waltz was written in the spring of 2019 while Chatham County Line was preparing to cut a record with our long-time Norwegian buddy Jonas Fjeld and the one and only Judy Collins. Tracked at Echo Mountain recording studio in Asheville, NC, featuring Greg Readling, Dave Wilson, John Teer, Russell Waldon (Judy's musical director and fabulous piano player), as well as the masterful drummer Bill Berg (Bob Dylan's Blood on the Tracks as well many other classics), this recording you hear was done with all of us (except for Bill) in one room and in one complete take.  

At the time it seemed unfortunate that Winter's Night Waltz didn't make it onto this album, but it gave me the chance to add my own voice to the duet and work with an amazing vocalist in  Lauren Stovall of "The Railsplitters" and "By the Lee".  Lauren and I headed to Vermillion Road studios to cut the vocal tracks and I'm sure you'll agree that Lauren absolutely nailed her part and that I didn't muck things too much on my end.  ;) 

Fast forward almost a year and a pandemic later and Winter's Night Waltz is finally ready for release!  Lauren and I are so thrilled to be sharing this song with all of you and hope you will enjoy it as much as we do this holiday season!   -Chandler
