        This musical tribute to the legendary Webb Pierce was conceived and produced by Gail Davies. Annoyed that Pierce was not a member of The Country Music Hall of Fame (despite the fact that his songs dominated the country charts during the 1950s and spent 113 weeks in the No. 1 position), Davies put together this album to remind the world of what an important artist Webb Pierce really was. All of the singers and musicians appearing on this tribute, some of whom had played on the orignial recordings, volunteered their time and talent free of charge to honor the man and his music. Webb Pierce died of pancreatic cancer in 1995 and was posthumesly inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2001, following the release of "Caught In The Webb." In the words of Edward Morris, editor of Billboard Magazine, "Webb Pierce was legitimate without the Country Music Hall of Fame but the Hall of Fame was never legitimate without Webb Pierce."

       There has never been enough recognition for Webb Pierce, a Louisianan who from the 1940s until his death in 1991 reached the top of the charts with 22 No. 1 hit singles and 58 songs in the Top 10 that mixed country and blues with Western swing. So this 21 song tribute album, featuring renditions of some of Webb Pierce's best-known songs, is a worthy homage to the man. Produced by country singer Gail Davies, who nails her performance on "Love Love Love," this album wistfully captures country music as it sounded in the 40s and 50s, rich with steel guitar, honky-tonk piano and twin fiddles. - People Magazine

       Webb Pierce - an emotive and flamboyant honky-tonk singer who favored sequined suits and guitar shaped swimming pools, was arguably the most popular country artist of the 1950s. This tribute album, produced by singer/songwriter Gail Davies, is remarkable for its range of participating artists, including some of Webb Pierce's contemporaries like George Jones and Willie Nelson, as well as Charley Pride, Crystal Gayle, Dwight Yoakam and Guy Clark. Most of these renditions stay close to Pierce's straightforward, beat-thumping style, with Emmylou Harris' aching version of the Cajun tune "Wondering" being a rare and beautiful exception. Barely a trace of that unique approach can still be heard in country music today, though after hearing these vibrant performances, its hard to figure out why. - USA Today
