Nashville, TN - 45 years after their first meeting, legendary producer/engineer "Cowboy" Jack Clement and Sun Records veteran Billy Lee Riley joined forces once again. The occasion for the reunion is the start of a new recording for Riley and Sun veteran Sonny Burgess, their first collaboration. Executive Producer Dan Griffin had put together Scotty Moore & D.J. Fontana's Grammy-nominated CD, "All the King's Men", Paul Burlison's comeback recording, "Train Kept A Rollin'" and Sonny Burgess' self-titled Rounder release. Griffin figured that a collaboration between the two artists and their Sun Records producer could rekindle the magic from their early days. Also, a film crew under the guidance of award-winning director, Bruce Sinofsky ("Brother's Keeper", "Paradise Lost") are capturing the sessions for inclusion in the first comprehensive Sun Records documentary.
