I’m so excited to have a new single out. We have all had some tough years to get through and for those of you like me, our bluegrass music helped with that. That’s what this new single is all about. Take a listen to A Little Bit of Bluegrass and it will chase your blues away. It’s a fun straight-to-the-point tune written by Carolina Road’s songwriter David Stewart. I think it’s a great follow up to our past number one singles, Bill Monroe’s ol Mandolin and True Grass. It’s sure to be a tune that hits plenty of parking lot jams and a song to start your day off with. It’s just a feel-good kind of song and that’s what we all need right now – Lorraine Jordan.
A Little Bit of Bluegrass centers around powerful lyrics that every music enthusiast can relate to. Written by David Stewart, the cut perfectly captures the feeling of using the power of music to heal a case of the blues, in the form of Bluegrass. It also showcases the powerful vocals of Carolina Road’s lead singer Allen Dyer, accompanied by strong harmony vocals from Kevin Lamm and Lorraine. It also features the world-class musicianship of Ben Greene on banjo;, Matt Hooper on fiddle and Wayne Morris on lead guitar. Between now and November 4th, Lorraine Jordan & Carolina Road have plenty more surprises in store for the project’s build-up.
The band will also spend the remainder of 2022 on the road in support of the new single. In addition to playing festivals and venues nationwide, they’ll also be hosting and headlining their annual Bluegrass Christmas In The Smokies in scenic Gatlinburg, Tenn. from November 17-19. Other nightly headliners include Larry Sparks and Lonesome Ramblers, Larry Stephenson, plus Joe Mullins, Ralph Stanley II, Paul Williams, Fast Track, Nothing Fancy, Williamson Branch, Nick Chandler and Delivered, plus many other great bands. During the event, attendees can expect to hear new performances of tracks from A Little Bit of Bluegrass.
