John Oates says : “Yes, it did. Without a doubt,” “Moving to Nashville was very important. Because I came here in the late ’90s and the early 2000s with just totally the idea that I would write songs, collaborate with different people, you know, spread my wings a little bit, see what would happen. But what I didn't count on and what was the most welcomed surprise was that I became part of the beginning of the Americana music movement and made friends with a lot of the type of musicians and writers who were part of that. And that was the key that unlocked this path to my past in a sense, because I found a kindred group of spirits, musical spirits who could help me articulate the stuff that was deep in my musical DNA, but then bring it out in a little bit more modern way. And that's what the Good Road Band is. They are a group of players who inherently understand what I'm trying to do, and then they can take it to another level due to their amazing musicianship” External link

John Oates says : “Yes, it did. Without a doubt,” “Moving to Nashville was very important. Because I came here in the late ’90s and the early 2000s with just totally the idea that I would write songs, collaborate with different people, you know, spread my wings a little bit, see what would happen. But what I didn't count on and what was the most welcomed surprise was that I became part of the beginning of the Americana music movement and made friends with a lot of the type of musicians and writers who were part of that. And that was the key that unlocked this path to my past in a sense, because I found a kindred group of spirits, musical spirits who could help me articulate the stuff that was deep in my musical DNA, but then bring it out in a little bit more modern way. And that's what the Good Road Band is. They are a group of players who inherently understand what I'm trying to do, and then they can take it to another level due to their amazing musicianship” External link
