Conway Twitty III and Rock Legends Record and Film at Sound Kitchen Studios

Michael Jenkins, grandson of the late, great Conway Twitty, recently recorded an EP in The Sound Kitchen's Big Boy studio. Michael is looking to fuse the country and rock genres by having well known "Rock" musicians play on "Country" songs, all of which were written by hit country songwriter Jeffrey Steele. The session musicians included bass player Rudy Sarzo (Ozzy Osbourne, Quiet Riot), drummer Troy Lucketta (Tesla), guitarist Kenny Olson (Kid Rock, 7 Day Binge), Guitarist Mark Matejka (Lynyrd Skynyrd) and background vocalist Jason Scheff (Chicago). All of these songs will be featured in a documentary called "Rockville", which will explore the changing landscape of music in a city that has traditionally been known as "the country music capital of the world". The film will feature interviews with many Nashville musicians including Autovaughn, Safety Suit, Jeremy McCoy (The Fray, One Republic), Mark Slaughter and many others.
