I have been listening to a CD from Jim & Valerie Gabehart which includes several original tunes written by Jim (Indicated with an * in the list below) along with some well known traditional tunes. Jim and Valerie are accompanied with Jason Carter, Steve Thomas and Rob Ickes on this album.
Jim & Valerie Gabehart live in West Virginia. They have been married for nearly 30 years and were both musicians at the time they met. They chose to spend their time and efforts raising their children instead of pursuing their musical careers. After their children were grown and on their own they decided to focus on their music. In fact that is what Jim had in mind when he wrote the title track for his wife! Perhaps we will get the chance to see Jim and Valerie playing in Kentucky soon.
It’s My Turn is the newest album released by the Gabeharts. You can see a full listing of their CDs on their website (link below). Each album has mp3 previews for each track so you can check them out. There are also mp3 demos available for two of Jim’s original songs (clickable in the track list below and on their official website).
