2013 collaboration between the Country singer/songwriters. Brennen Leigh and Noel McKay craft story songs with equal measures heart ('Before the World Was Made') and humor ('Breaking Up And Making Up Again'). Evidence: Before the World Was Made. The Austin-based songwriters' debut collaboration spotlights the celebrated troubadours in peak form ('Before We Come to Our Senses'). 'These are modern day country duets ‡ la George Jones and Melba Montgomery,' producer Gurf Morlix says, 'but with very sophisticated songwriting.'
