Kentucky based newcomer Willie Breeding will release his debut album ‘Big Sky’ early next year, with the first single to be taken from it Prague Spring featuring a guest vocal from Caitlin Rose. Detailing the story behind the song he explains “One night in Prague, 1962, the son of the Italian ambassador met an actress they called, “The Czech Bridgette Bardot”. Their adventures were like a black and white noir. Bullets were drunk out of martini glasses. Official diplomatic vehicles were stolen. 14 years later, my wife was born… I called Caitlin because she’s one of my favorite lyricists, and I thought she would enjoy the story. I felt too close to the material working on it myself. Later, when I was showing my wife the lyrics Caitlin and I had written, she instantly came up with the last line of the song, which I took as a good omen.”
