“Uncle Vance’s Guitar,” and it was inspired by a 1949 Gibson J45 that belonged to his Dad’s oldest brother, Vance Furr. The guitar has stayed in the family, and the connection it makes to the music inspired the title cut, set in the year of a picture that is the cover of the album.
“Both my parents’ families were musical, and Uncle Vance, in particular, has a very poignant personal story that forms the backdrop for that song.” The other titles on the album are eclectic—musically and lyrically, but weave together around the themes of suffering, family and grace. “Welcome to Regrets” is a song penned with veteran songwriter Pat Terry about a tattoo removal parlor. Other songs include, “I’m Going to Miss the Blues in Heaven”, “Everything Will Be Alright,” “Gideon Bible,” “Southern Shalom,” and “Down in Bethlehem,” which bandmate Brent Warren says is maybe Gary’s best song ever.
