Rural Rhythm Records has announced Carrie Hassler hit the #1 spot on the SiriusXM Radio Bluegrass Junction Most Played Tracks chart for October 2012 with her song “Luxury Liner.” The tune is the first single release from her current album, The Distance produced by Steve Gulley. The album appears on the October SiriusXM Bluegrass Junction Most Played Albums chart and debuted earlier this year at #10 on Billboard’s Top 10 Bluegrass Album Chart (retail sales).
“Luxury Liner” comes from Country Rock legend songwriter/artist Gram Parsons that Carrie beautifully transforms into a hard drivin’ bluegrass barn burner as evidenced by other chart action. The song is #3 on the Bluegrass Today Top 20 Song chart (10/12/12), the October Bluegrass Today Monthly Top 20 Song chart, and Power Source Magazine’s Top 35 Bluegrass Songs. Another track, “Get Me Over You” has also hit the radio charts appearing recently on the Bluegrass Today Weekly Top 20 Songs chart.
Carrie has appeared on two recent TV programs including the RFD-TV special, Bluegrass Comes to the Valley, part of Reno’s Old Time Music. She was the featured artist on Rural Rhythm Records’ TV production, Behind The Dream on BlueHighways TV, hosted by Mike Scott, and performed at a special showcase event for this TV series last month at Ernest Tubb Record Shop in Nashville.
