The Pressley Girls cd - when it ends in a walk

The Pressley Girls – When it Ends in a Walk cd cover

We got a lot of material to choose from at the photo shoot we did at the JCCFS in preparation for the girls’ debut cd cover. I’ve shared several of the photos from the day with you over the last month or so.

The photo above is the one they chose for the cover. I teased them that they must have been going for the 70’s rock band look. They said “Well what’s wrong with that those guys were cool!”

I really like the photo and am amazed at how well the colors work together. We did the shoot on the morning of a busy Saturday when we all had other obligations to hurry off to. The girls didn’t try to match their outfits, but they ended up looking like they did. And the colors of their shirts really bring out the colors in the rock building behind them. I’m totally surprised by how much they look alike in the photo. Even with the straight and curly hair I have to admit they look very similar.

The cds arrived this week and they sound great! We could never repay Paul for all the hard work he put into recording and mixing the tracks. The girls have already sold quite a few, more than I would have thought in only a few days. I’ll tell you how to get one of your own, but first I want to share a recent video with you.

Many of you will remember my nephew Ben who showed up regularly in the first few years of my Pickin and Grinnin in the Kitchen Spot. A few days ago Ben used some of his fancy equipment to make a video of us playing. I think it turned out really good. See what you think.

I hope you enjoyed the video! Now for the cd information.

If you don’t live in the area and you’d like to purchase a cd go here. If you do live in the area, you can email me at [email protected] and we’ll figure out a way to get the cd to you so you don’t have to pay shipping or if it’s easier for you just buy it online that works too.

    Do the CDs come with an autographed picture? I’d pay double for that!

    Hmmm I never saw you singing…. Loved the song and the video. Grew up hearing and singing that one.
    The cover photo is so very good. It is hard to put into words. The weathered stone, the weathered pine, the trailing vine with those complementary russet colors, the deep and even color tones and their serene expressions just all go together so well. And the whatever-that-color-is they are wearing is a grace note. It makes them stand out but only just nicely. Very well done. I don’t know you or them well enough to hug you all for real but if I could hug them like a brother it would show what I feel.

    I’ve been anxiously awaiting for this CD to come out, now I can get one soon. With the playing and Chitter and Chatter singing, this is another of my Favorites.
    When I got up this morning, my Jeep was White up at Topton, reminding what is to come. There wasn’t any on the ground, I love this colder weather. …Ken

    WOW!!! TIPPER:
    Yuns dun got it down pat! So impressive, beautiful and ready for Nashville. The song was one of my Mother’s favorite! I loved to hear her singing when she was out doing a little gardening. After I grew up, went to TENNESSEE and became obsessed with GARDENING, I would take her BUNCHES of bulbs/flowers and plant them where ever she wanted them, in her endless gardens! And of course I planted the same plants in THE GARDENS OF EVA. Now our yard is the prettiest landscape among MANY YARDS in the OAK HILLS! Probably a negative at SELLING TIME!!!

    I just bought one for Alex! She wanted this CD and Shopkins for her birthday. To be honest, we will all be looking forward to listening to it in the car.
    On another note, me and the kids have really enjoyed the spooktacular trip through Appalachian haint tales. Last week we were home for the Pumpkin Show and the kids told their Pap some of the stories we had read on Blind Pig. My dad was impressed. My dad wanted to know where they had heard all these great stories. Alex said “The Pressley Girl’s mom.”
    I like that my kids are getting a broader Appalachian education.
    Finally, congrats ladies on your CD. I’m proud of y’all.

    You couldn’t have picked a better picture for the cover. I didn’t see the rest, but how could they be better? The girls didn’t look busy or rushed, just beautiful, as always. At first look, the building has a pinkish hue brought out by the coordinating colors of their clothing. I ordered my CD and can’t wait to get it.

    I like this video because You, Tip, are in the front row instead of hiding in the back! Of course the music’s great, it’s always great!
    I’m excited about the cd finally arriving. The picture is lovely, and yes, I noticed right away how much they look alike in this picture….but they are twins!
    I’m planning to give the cd’s as Christmas gifts this year…guess I better get over and buy them before this first batch is gone!
