Associate Professor Frank Hamrick made a quick trip back to Nashville this summer to complete photographic work for the upcoming album of Dave Rawlings Machine. The award-winning duo of Dave Rawlings and Gillian Welch met Hamrick in Nashville in the summer of 2014 when he produced a tintype of the band that would become the front cover of the new album, Nashville Obsolete. Almost a year later, he was contacted by Welch (whose undergraduate senior work was in photography) to make a return trip to Nashville to produce the back image of the album. Be sure to pick up a copy of Nashville Obsolete on 18 September. Well done, Frank! BTW: the featured photo here was shot by Gillian Welch during the photo session with Rawlings (left) and Hamrick.
