Nashville's “A Team” came out in full force to produce country vocalist Amber Dotson's Capitol Records debut, due out later this year.

Producer Billy Joe Walker Jr., engineer Steve Tillisch and some of Music City's top-tier session players — Lonnie Wilson (drums), Michael Rhodes (bass), Audrey Haney (fiddle), J.T. Corenflos (electric guitar), Pat Buchanan (bass), Gordon Mote (keyboards) and Biff Watson (acoustic guitar) — gathered at Emerald Entertainment's Studio A and, later, Ocean Way Nashville to track the album, which was recorded onto two analog tape machines, one with a 16-track head in sync with a 24-track analog machine.

Chuck Ainlay mixed the album on his SSL 9000 J at Sound Stage Studios in Nashville, and Bob Ludwig mastered at his Gateway Mastering facilities in Portland, Maine. Walker enthuses, “It's punchy and fat, and hopefully a lot of people will love it as much as we do.”
