LISTEN to CeeLo Green is… Thomas Callaway HERE:
 
CeeLo Green, real name Thomas Callaway, collaborated with Dan Auerbach from The Black Keys, who is the producer and creative director of this new album. It all came together when Dan invited CeeLo to Nashville for some songwriting sessions and after penning almost 30 songs together (with no intention of creating an album), Dan said that CeeLo's voice would be great on some of the tracks.

They went into his studio with a live band of legendary 60s & 70s musicians and in one take, they recorded the album that you hear today. This is the first time that CeeLo has recorded in-studio with a live band behind him and it really gives it that vintage sound and feel.

The live band, which Auerbach curated, included Nashville musicians such as Bobby Wood (who has backed greats like ELVIS), Dave Roe (bass player for Johnny Cash), Gene Crisman (famous drummer who played with Elvis, Roy Orbison, Dusty Springfield), Russ Pahl (electric guitarist who plays for Miranda Lambert and Taylor Swift), among others.

Track Listing for CeeLo Green is… Thomas Callaway:

    For You
    Lead Me
    Little Mama
    Don’t Lie
    I Wonder How Love…
    People Watching
    You Gotta Do It All
    Doing It All Together
    Slow Down
    Down With The Sun
    Thinking Out Loud
    The Way

Remember I told you about the Dallas jump-off who singer/songwriter Cee Lo Green keeps on call? I was wrong about her hometown. She actually lives in Houston, according to gossip website TMZ.com.

I previously introduced you to Cee Lo's former jump-off @MissErika, who appeared as a knowledgeable guest on Anderson Cooper's segment on sports groupies.
