March 15, 2019 – Orange Beach, AL (OBA®) – The country charm is practically dripping from the trees as you find your way to the middle of 2,400 acres in Loxley. Waiting for you there is the cozy but professional Admiral Bean Studio.

Nationally touring singer-songwriter Edward David Anderson gets it.

“Traveled down that red dirt road in Loxley and threw 10 new tunes at the supremely talented Anthony Crawford today at Admiral Bean Studio,” Anderson recently posted on Facebook. “The dude gets me. And my songs. Interested to see what this stuff turns into.”

Savana Lee of Sugarcane Jane.Crawford is the multi-instrumentalist well known of late for being half of the popular husband-and-wife duo Sugarcane Jane with Savana Lee. The pair performs about 150 shows a year from as close as the Flora-Bama and to the far reaches of California, the Northeast U.S. and Colorado.

“This is big,” Crawford said. “We’re opening three shows for Dwight Yoakam coming up in August in the Northeast.”

When you hear about Crawford, you inevitably hear about the big names associated with his stellar career in decades of music.

“Neil Young’s the big one because everybody knows him,” Crawford said.

He’s also toured with Yoakam’s band, was a side man for Steve Winwood and played banjo sang harmonies with legendary country crooner Sonny James, among others.
