From Janis: I can’t remember how long ago I met Chad, but he is one of my favorite people on earth – and one of my favorite bass players. We toured all over the world; Japan, Europe, United States, you name it. For years, I delighted in the audience’s surprise when Chad pulled out the bass slide he’d invented and took a blistering solo. Generous to a fault, a farm boy by birth and a country star by right, he’s assembled an amazing group of musicians here, along with a great video. Putting together a project like this during lockdown is hard enough. Making it seamless? Incredible. 

(Janis Ian)

Better times, better times will come.
Better times, better times will come.
When this world learns to live as one,
oh, better times will come

When we greet each dawn without fear
knowing loved ones soon will be near
When the winds of war
cannot blow any more
Oh, better times will come


Though we live each day as our last
we know someday soon it will pass
We will dance, we will sing
in that never-ending spring
Oh, better times will come
