John Oates is taking fans on a cross-genre journey with his latest project, Good Road To Follow. The second single "Don't Cross Me Wrong," a forewarning blues-rock track written and produced with country icon Vince Gill, will be released on July 16.
"Having the chance to write, record and co-produce with Vince Gill was, without a doubt, a highlight in my musical life, adds Oates when asked about the single. "I've been a fan of Vince for years and consider him to be one of the greatest vocalists and guitarists of our time."
The song, which is the first collaboration between Oates and Gill, proved to be an effortless partnership. Written in Gill's living room, Oates notes that the idea started with a title and developed easily, "We wrote the song in literally a half an hour. In fact, it happened so quickly, I kind of looked at him and said, 'did we just finish this?'"
