Gone to Louisiana

dc.contributor.authorPerkins, Dave
dc.descriptionDave Perkins is Associate Director of the Religion in the Arts and Contemporary Culture program at Vanderbilt Divinity. Before coming to Vanderbilt for Divinity School and Ph.D. studies, he had a 25-year career in music as a songwriter, record producer, and guitarist for a number of genre-defining artists. Commenting on the event, Perkins says, “The artists I recruited for the Sacred Blues concert were all good friends who shared with me a love of blues and spirituals. The event had the additional distinction of benefiting MusiCares and The Gospel Music Trust, two organizations that provide aid to musicians in crisis situations. The song ‘Gone to Louisiana’ was not a finished work at the time of the concert. However, because the evening featured primarily acoustic guitar performances, I needed a rock–blues to accommodate some electric guitar improvisation. I finished writing the song not long after the concert. It appears as ‘Revival’ on my 2009 album Pistol City Holiness.”en_US
