The start of 2021 is bringing with it new music from Drew Gregory. Over the summer of 2020 with shows being cancelled, Gregory and his band headed out to record new music in true country fashion.
During 2020 there was no new music released from Gregory but in the background, a lot of work was being done to bring news songs to 2021. "It's been fun to work on this and fun to keep it kind of on the down-low this whole time."
Sitting at home for any performer is not an easy thing to do explained Gregory and he knew his band was itching to play as well. After getting the band together in July, they went to an unusual space to record, "We headed out to Coulee Creek Farms and we brought a bunch of recording equipment out and recorded for a few days."
Gregory had a few songs in his back pocket and was looking for the perfect project and 'The Barn Sessions' was it. Setting up in a barn to record took some effort for the crew, they were hanging blankets on the walls and from the ceilings and laying carpet to help the sound, and getting a top-notch sound engineer Mark Troyer out to help pull everything together definitely helped and has made these recordings something that Gregory is extremely proud of.
The first song of the four being released from 'The Barn Sessions' this year is called 'Beer With Anyone', along with the song release, Gregory will share some behind the scenes video footage from the recording sessions to let the audience in on what went into putting this together.
Going to a Drew Gregory show is definitely an experience and the song reflects that, taking time to chat with fans and to have a drink with them is something that Gregory has done and will continue to do to build that connection with the people who are taking time to come and see him play.
"If anyone has to been to one of my shows I've probably chatted with you, I always come out and I think that's how we've made a big part of our fan base is just those connections."
Spending most of 2020 away from the traditional stages he normally performs on Gregory performed live on social media multiple times throughout the year to share his love of music with everyone and bring a bit of fun and laughter to what was one of the toughest years most have faced. As with many artists around the world, the goal for 2021 for Gregory and his band is to bring music back to the stage when it is safe to do so and entertain the crowds again, for now, Gregory is happy to be at home with his family sharing his love of country music.
