“Eyes of a Child” by Greg Jacobs, from the album “Encore”

Greg Jacobs is one of the Red Dirt Troubadours based in Stillwater, Okla. who influenced the songwriting of fellow Okies Garth Brooks, Jimmy LaFave, Tom Skinner, Cody Canada, The Red Dirt Rangers, Bob Childers and Jason Boland. He’s a smooth singing vocalist who records only periodically, living by Childers’ adage of it’s better to write one good song than 10 bad ones. For “Encore,” which Jacobs indicates could very well be his last album, he sets forth a collection of songs with some of the state’s best session musicians including producer/string man Jared Tyler, Gene Williams, Jeff Parker, Shelby Eicher, Terry “Buffalo” Ware” and two duets with Carter Sampson.
