Giant congratulations to the great @paulzamek and team! Thank you for bringing this amazing project to the world! 

Nashville, TN - Five days in the studio and over 50 years in the making, Cows In The Pasture
emerges as a long-lost treasure from the archives of country music history. Recorded at the now
defunct Wally Heider Studios in Los Angeles, CA, the album was originally produced in April
1970 by rock icon Brian Wilson, co-founder of The Beach Boys. In the vocal booth was Fred
Vail, their former manager and magnetic concert promoter. The recording sessions have finally
been unearthed.

Fred’s vision and voice, alongside Brian’s famous touch, brings forth this collection of timeless
country classics and originals by various songwriters from the era. “I’ll produce the album… you pick the players and the songs,” Fred recalls Brian saying, setting the stage for a musical journey like no other.

The acclaimed team of musicians, curated by Fred himself, includes James Burton, Buddy
Emmons, Glen D. Hardin, Red Rhodes, Keith Allison, Gordon Terry, Jay Dee Maness, Dennis
St. John, Freddie Weller, Gib Guilbeau, and Red Wooten. Recorded outside of his regular band
commitments, Cows In The Pasture remains one of Brian’s most elusive and
never-before-heard productions.

A story that not only beckons to country music fans but resonates with a broader audience,
offering a unique glimpse into the almost fabulous life of Fred Vail and his dedicated friend and
Producer, Sam Parker. As the two transition from fans to family on a heartfelt journey, they are
joined in the studio by 13-time Grammy award winner T Bone Burnett and an all-star group of
legendary and contemporary artists in completing the Cows In The Pasture album.
Both the album and docuseries lead to the culmination of a celebratory concert where these
long-dormant songs will be performed live for the very first time.
