Donnie Fritts Donnie Fritts is a Florence, Alabama native and one of many local musical legends. He’s a lauded songwriter, for his multiple notable tracks that have been recorded by artists such as Dolly Parton, Ray Charles, Willie Nelson, and Jerry Lee Lewis. He was the keyboardist with Kris Kristofferson’s band for nearly 20 years and also acted alongside him in several Sam Peckinpah films. He was inducted into the Alabama Music Hall of Fame in 2008.
Caleb Elliott There are about 500 miles between Louisiana and Florence, Alabama. Singer and multi-instrumentalist Caleb Elliott knows them all well. They’re the highways and rural roads that led him from playing dollar margarita nights in Cajun country to touring the world as the cellist with acclaimed singer-songwriter Dylan LeBlanc. Now, they represent the journey of his latest solo record-a collection of songs that reaches back to his background as a classically trained cellist and forward to the sound he’s building with new generation of Shoals musicians.
