A small glimpse into the making of Family Ties

Charles Wesley Godwin has been receiving all the praises since the release of his highly anticipated album, which blew expectations out of the water.

Amid the non-stop talk of the incredible album, Charles Wesley Godwin gives fans a glimpse inside Echo Mountain Studios in Ashville, North Carolina, on how the album came to life with a documentary film, “Making of Family Ties.”

The documentary highlights every aspect of the album’s birth, from the first moments when they are headed to record, noting that at that point, the album could sound like anything, sitting and listening to cuts, creating melodies that compliment the lyrics with Allegheny High, to talking through tracks where they might be stuck.

The fly-on-the-wall perspective captured by director Louie Nice takes you through every aspect of the recording process, with minor commentary allowing you to feel the music as it is brought to life.

“I’ve never had this much fun making an album.” 

Godwin notes just minutes into the film.

Godwin was still an independent artist when he set foot in the studio to embark on Family Ties. While that has since changed, Godwin’s label loved the body of work the boys spent two weeks creating, leaving it as is for release.

The record released via Big Loud has taken country music fans by storm, already being named a top album of the year contender. The album debuted at #6 on Spotify’s “Top Albums Debut USA” chart and found itself in the top 10 of Apple Music’s Country Albums chart on the release day.

Single “All Again” has also been making waves on the Americana radio charts, debuting at #32 and now sitting at #21. The early performance of the album has been surreal to see, and I am sure even more wild for Godwin and the Allegheny High.

With his sold-out Ryman Auditorium shows around the corner, Charles Wesley Godwin has been riding a high I don’t think will slow down anytime soon.

If you’re a behind-the-scenes nerd like me, “Making of Family Ties” is a must-watch.
