“Over the years, so many folks have supported my songwriting, waiting on me to actually release an album,” Cowan said. “I can’t say how much I’ve appreciated their patience and how they’ve stood behind me and allowed me to find the right time for this project. I’m overwhelmed by the response.“

For the past 30 years, Lance Cowan has worked behind the scenes with some of the country’s finest songwriters, including Joe Ely, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Butch Hancock, Michael Martin Murphey, Nanci Griffith, Guy Clark and many more.

Pat Flynn, who plays on the album, is a hit songwriter for such artists as Garth Brooks and is perhaps best known for his work with wildly influential New Grass Revival, recently observed “Of course, writing good songs puts one in a fairly exclusive group – but actually creating a distinctive voice, form and style is to ascend into rarified air. Lance Cowan has achieved a very distinctive style, warm and engaging, but most importantly, recognizable. Lance continues to make a significant contribution to songwriting, not just as a form of expression, but as creative art at the highest level.”

Like so many, Cowan came to Nashville planning to make a living in the music business. His foot in the door at a leading music pr firm, Network Ink, led to work with the likes of New Grass Revival (Sam Bush, Pat Flynn, John Cowan & Bela Fleck), Charlie Daniels, Nanci Griffith, Reba McEntire and many more. It wasn’t long before he moved to powerhouse Vector Management, which represented Griffith, New Grass Revival, Steve Wariner, Ely, Lyle Lovett and more. As an independent publicist, he has worked with artists as diverse as Ely, Clarence “Gatemouth” Brown, Bobby Charles, Murphey, Drew Holcomb and many more. As a songwriter, his works have been covered by the likes of Joan Baez, Janis Ian and David Mallett, to name a few.

For So Far So Good, Cowan assembled some of the finest musicians in the world, including Dan Dugmore (Linda Ronstadt, James Taylor), Sam Bush, Flynn (New Grass Revival), Dave Pomeroy (Don Williams), Andrea Zonn (James Taylor), Keith Sewell (The Chicks), Robert Reynolds (The Mavericks), Jay Turner, among others.
