And no, his collaboration with Neko Case and Kelly Hogan (above) most certainly didn’t count. The State Journal reports that starting tonight, ESPN’s “Baseball Tonight” will feature new theme music, as performed by The Davisson Brothers Band and network analyst Sir John Kruk (link swiped from Baseball Think Factory)
Kruk approached Chris Davisson and Donnie Davisson about writing a new song for the show he had been on for eight years. The Davissons brought in the help of Phil O’Donnell, a Nashville songwriter who has No. 1 hits like Montgomery Gentry’s single “Back When I Knew It All” under his belt.
According to a news release from the band, when Kruk arrived in the studio, he stunned everyone with his vocal ability, which caused the final version of the new theme song to be a duet.
