Americana Highways brings you this premiere of the song “Junior and Lloyd” by Jon Byrd from his forthcoming EP Me and Paul, due to be available on July 16.  The EP was produced, recorded and engineered by Joe V. McMahan at Wow & Flutter Studio, Nashville and mastered by Alex McCollough at True East Mastering.   The executive producer for the project was Friends of Longleaf Pine Records

“Junior & Lloyd” was written by Jon’s friend, James Kelly.  It’s Paul Niehaus on pedal steel guitar and Jon on guitar and vocals.  Jon Byrd is a seasoned songwriter and performer of songs of heartache.   His  longtime friendship with this song’s writer adds a rich dimension to the song’s performance. Give it a listen, and then place this one on your top shelf songwriting collection.  “Junior and Lloyd were good buddies.”

“Jr. and Lloyd” was written by my long-time best pal James Kelly in Atlanta, GA. My coming of age playing and recording country music was with James and his band Slim Chance and the Convicts. This song speaks to friendship that your lucky to find once in a whole lifetime. — Jon Byrd
