"Hey Bill, the song Car Crash sounds fantastic! The tracks are absolutely great! Thanks so much!"- Songwriter Travis Salyer, Nashville, TN  (Nashville Trax added Brent Mason guitar tracks, Bill Watson bass guitar, Jim Riley drums and Steve King keyboard tracls to Travis' guitar & vocal tracks.)

"I wasn't happy with the results from several other Nashville studios I tried- professional sounding but bland, perfunctory and uninspired.


Poking around the web I ran across the Nashville Trax site and something told me they just might be the right studio.


When I received the first six Nashville Trax mixes back I was completely astounded. Finally, I was hearing the magic I knew was there! It was far beyond my expectations,


The 80 + demos and associated live shows in Nashville I've done with producer Bill Watson and his Nashville Trax team of musicians has been the single greatest experience of my life and that's saying something!" Jon Smith,  Palm Beach Gardens, Florida

"Bill, 

These tracks are AWESOME. I am completely blown away.

Holy Cow.

A huge thank you to you, Brent and Jim.

Look forward to the mando and fiddle tracks".-

Rob Zimmerman, Calgary, Canada
"Hey! I finally listened with headphones...The singer is great. He has a lot of expression and makes the song fun.The rap part is terrific! I love the drums, especially the house kick drum that comes in on the chorus. The organ is fabulous, kind of gives the song an underlying rock sound.

The lead guitar is great (reminded me of Paisley or Urban). Love the bass!
 I sort of play the bass so I  really love the bass line you played, Bill. I really like the lead into the Norad bit and of course, the Norad bit itself is awesome!

 

The mix is really clean and the song proliferates with rich tones and multiple interesting layers. FABULOUS JOB! Please thank everyone who worked on it for me."
