Releasing September 30th on Lauderdale's own label, Sky Crunch Records, This Changes Everything was largely recorded during a single day in Austin. There, faced with a quick break in a recent summertime tour, Lauderdale rounded up a cast of all-star sideman from the Lone Star state -- including producer and pedal steel player Tommy Detamore, drummer Tom Lewis (Heybale, Whitney Rose), pianist Floyd Domino (an original member of Asleep at the Wheel), Bobby Flores, Kevin Smith (bass player for Willie Nelson), Chris Masterson (one-half of the Mastersons, as well as Steve Earle's electric guitarist), vocalists Brennen Leigh, Noel McKay and Sunny Sweeney -- and recorded 11 songs, all of which were originally written by Lauderdale and a handful of Texas-based songwriters. Filling the album's tracklist are co-writes with Bruce Robison ("There is a Horizon," "This Changes Everything"), Hayes Carll ("Drive"), Daryl Burgess ("All the Rage in Paris," previously recorded by the Derailers and Randy Rogers Band with Johnny Bush), Odie Blackmon ("Lost In The Shuffle"), and Frank Dycus ("It All Started And Ended With You," "The Weakness Of Two Hearts," "I'll Still Be Around").
Lauderdale's latest creation, This Changes Everything, presents the songwriter's own version of the traditional Texas dancehall sound, filled with shuffles, rave-ups, plenty of sharp songwriting and appearances by a handful of genuine Texas legends. For a wagon master who's nowhere near the end of his journey, This Changes Everything marks the latest stop in a longer trek.
