“Rock Bottom, Population 1” is Dallas Wayne on vocals and guitar; Wyatt Beard on background vocals; Jim “Moose” Brown on piano, B-3 organ, synthesizer, and Wurlitzer; Melonie Cannon on background vocals; Fred Eltringham on drums and percussion; Larry Franklin on fiddle; Mike Johnson on steel guitar; James Mitchell on electric guitar; Larry Paxton on bass; Joe Spivey on fiddle; and John Willis on acoustic guitar.
Dallas Wayne presents a classic country style song with deep vocal tones and the wry lyrics, courtesy of a meeting of the minds with Robbie Folks, that only thinly mask much deeper truths.
The song “Rock Bottom, Population 1” is one of the very first songs that I co-wrote with Robbie Fulks. Although it has been recorded before, I love the fresh Mel Tillis and the Statesiders kind of treatment that producer Buddy Cannon was able to recreate with this song. I guess it’s only natural, since Buddy spent many years playing with the Statesiders. — Dallas Wayne
