"Rare Birds" had been the culmination of 3 solo albums in 7 years that the singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer released to widespread acclaim. His first, 2011's "Gentle Spirit", a beautiful California dream of an album, is a classic by now and won him the admiration and friendship of Graham Nash, David Crosby, Elvis Costello and Jackson Browne. His follow-up, "Fanfare", was also well-received with Uncut calling it “a lavish musical epic, the work of a dedicated and stone cold studioholic .” But now Wilson was looking for something completely new. With Wilson's longtime friend Pat Sansone of Wilco producing, Wilson and the band recorded in Studio A at the Sound Emporium, the late country maverick Cowboy Jack Clement's studio. The musicians included Nashville’s premier session players including bass player Dennis Crouch, Russ Pahl on pedal steel, multi-instrumentalist Jim Hoke, and world renowned Fiddle master Mark O’Connor. The album was cut in only six days. “It was so fast it was a blur.” Hence the title "Dixie Blur". “And there really is a magic that occurs when musicians play together in a room and create that one
consistent thing in time, something is created by the collective energy that is impossible to recreate otherwise,” says Wilson.
