On July 13, 2006, the top musicians in Nashville, backup vocalists and Jim Case, producer, joined Marvin in the recording studio.
Marvin recorded two songs, self penned “Newkie Brown” and “Let Her Go” written by Darryl Gylten. What super songs they are! Stay tuned, you’ll be able to hear a snippet of each one soon!
Marvin’s brother, Bob, also recorded his self penned tune “I Love Texas”! Great voices run in the Rainwater family!
Everyone had a wonderful time and topped the trip off with a visit backstage at the Grand Ole Opry! Marvin was welcomed by many of his friends, Ray Price, Jimmy C. Newman, Jim Ed Brown, Connie Smith, Little Jimmy Dickens, and the worlds greatest disc jockey, Eddie Stubbs. Regrettably, NO ONE HAD A CAMERA !?*#!
