"Two quick years have gone by in the effort to put together the release of Calloused Hands, and it is now going to be available within a week – ironically more as a tribute to my brother Alex who had so much impact on the songs we chose, than simply another collection of songs I wanted to record and release. I can’t wait for everyone to hear it!"
In 2005, Eddie released the self-titled Eddie Bush, which featured "Hard to Stop a Train," Eddie’s first Billboard charting single. "Hard to Stop a Train" and its accompanying video were featured frequently on GAC (Great American Country) and CMT (Country Music Television). The national success of "Hard to Stop a Train" led to a fortuitous introduction to Grammy winning songwriter Marcus Hummon.
Having attended one of Eddie’s live performances in Nashville, Hummon was impressed by Eddie’s guitar-slinging talents and breadth of vocal range. Looking for the perfect artist to round out a trio he was creating, Hummon invited Eddie to meet with Chris Roberts and Royal Reed in Nashville. Roberts said, “From the first moment the three of us sang together it felt like home.” Reed added, “There was something about the way that we all came together. Musically, it all just fell into place; it just felt right.”
In August 2005, Eddie, Chris and Royal formed the trio One Flew South and they were quickly signed by Decca/Universal in New York. One Flew South’s debut album Last of the Good Guys included their Billboard Hot Country single My Kind of Beautiful and the album included collaborations by award-winning songwriters Marcus Hummon, Darrell Scott and JD Souther.
“I live my life in and around music, and it’s all I’ve ever known. The biggest reward is the energy I receive from all the effort that goes in to each project and performance. Music is an evolution; it’s all about the journey! I’ve met very talented and amazing people along the way and I look forward to that continued journey. The path isn’t always planned, but it is always straight ahead!”Calloused Hands track listing:
