Alison Prestwood on SoundBetter

Alison Prestwood – 4-time nominee for ACM Bass Player of the Year (Academy of Country Music Awards) - Experienced in any style you could possibly throw my way. I've played on records and on live gigs for many years. B.A. degree in Music Theory & Arranging. Top of the line recording gear and all the basses you could want.

Well-established bass player (according to the musicians’ union, she has played on over 13,500 songs in the Nashville studios). Played on all tracks on George Benson’s 2019 album, “Walking to New Orleans.” Recently played on Kid Rock's upcoming record and on a project where Steve Gadd was the drummer (yes, I know....) Played on Blake Shelton’s first three albums, including the #1 songs “Austin” and “The Baby” and the huge hit “Ol’ Red.” Played on countless other albums by artists Trace Adkins, Josh Thompson, Needtobreathe, Elizabeth Cook, Ronnie Milsap, Rodney Crowell, Jessica Simpson, Jim Lauderdale, Buddy Miller, Julie Miller, Olivia Newton-John, Faith Hill, Marty Stuart, Kim Carnes, Faith Hill, Brooks and Dunn, Cletis T. Judd, Felix Cavliere & Steve Cropper, David Ball, Allison Moorer, Robbie Fulks, Ray Stevens, Don McLean, Chris LeDoux, B.J. Thomas, Jeffrey Steele, Ty Herndon, and Cliff Richard, etc.

All styles! Great with fingers or pick. Electric solid body and hollow body basses. Very good music reader, too. I'll give you a direct track and an amp track.

I was in the house band for the 2019 Country Music Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, the CMA Awards Show in November 2019, and the CMT Country Christmas special in 2020.

Artists I've toured with include Shawn Colvin, Olivia Newton-John, Patty Loveless, Rodney Crowell, Amy Grant, and Joe Bonamassa.
