Sam Llanas, formerly of the BoDeans, joins Big Blend Radio to discuss newly released 13th studio album and fourth major solo effort, Return of the Goya - Part 1. The album showcases his long love of classic country music (his earliest musical memory is hearing and being mesmerized by Hank Williams). These eleven works are a loving tribute to a style of music witnessing simple songs with strong melodies and harmonies that told stories resonating in the heart. Longtime fans will be reminded of two of his most beloved songs ("Looking for me Somewhere" from 1986 and "I'm in Trouble Again" from '87).

Produced by lap steel & electric guitarist Sean Williamson & mastered by longtime collaborator Gary Tanin, the recording features many prominent Milwaukee musicians Llanas has worked with over recent years along with new faces, including bassist Matt Turner, drummer Kevin Dunphy, drummer Ryan Schiedermayer, and trombonist John Simons.
