I moved back home to Louisiana from Nashville, Tennessee to help take care of my mom - a promise I had made to my dad before he passed away. Also, so my wife Fran and I could be close to our kids and family.
I still burned inside to write, make records, and perform. So I called on two ol' Louisiana boys, Timmy Takewell and Wayne Freeman, who each had played with me in Nashville at different shows, but we had all never played together as a group. So on a cold Saturday Morning we all met up at FreeMark Studios on Cut Off Road with a session drummer (Ray Loop) and cut a song called "Breathe in Breathe Out". The outcome was phenomenal! I knew right away these were the guys that I wanted to pick up with where I left off in Nashville. So Charlie Wood and his Smokin' Section Band was formed.
We decided to make a record, so we all started writing. The three of us poured our hearts and souls into making the music we grew up on: old school with a fresh sound. We wrote it for fans of music, not A&R or Commercial Radio people. We broke all the rules. We found magic and got our mojo working!
