About the Album
Paul Chet and The Whiskey Chickens was formed through a string of serendipitous events. Paul Chet opened for Aaron Watson in 2013 and needed a fiddler on stage with him. From that collaboration, they have gathered some of the best musicians on the front range of Colorado to create a truly top-shelf country band. The Whiskey Chickens perform throughout Northern Colorado and Wyoming regularly selling out the house. Chet’s voice and Wickam’s arrangements combine to create a fresh signature sound that pleases ears of all types. The songs chosen for this album represent audience favorites over the past 5 years of performing.
9. Somebody Call the Doctor (Vi Wickam & Franklin Taggart) – Country Blues Party Jam
Paul: All thanks to Vi Wickam and Franklin Taggart for writing this gem Somebody call the Doctor! This song definitely stretched my vocal style and I absolutely love the tune and my band mates that wrote and created it!
Vi: I woke up early in the morning in a dream with this melody in my head. In my dream, we were playing this song in front of a stadium full of screaming fans. I sang it into the voice recorder on my phone, and sent it to Franklin. He helped me come up with the rest of the lyrics, and finish out the structure of it. It has everything a country song could want: Whiskey, Jesus, my gal who left me, my dog, my pickup truck, a smokin’ gun, and a new lady. What more could you ask for?
