Audie Blaylock and Redline’s new album Cryin’ Heart Blues is, among other things, very easy listening.
This contemporary bluegrass album has Blaylock’s guitar and voice supported by some of the best pickers you will hear in a bluegrass band. Evan Ward on banjo, Patrick McAvinue on fiddle and mandolin, Matt Wallace on bass.
This is Audie Blaylock’s second album since leaving left Rhonda Vincent’s Rage. Earlier in his career he cut his teeth as a member of Jimmy Martin’s Sunny Mountain Boys at the tender age of just nineteen years old.
For seasoned fans of Blaylock’s now 30 year career, this album contains no surprises. This CD has some hard-driving bluegrass and some soft, sweet and gentle ballads, all with strong harmonies and cracking instrumental support. This is the best recorded work that Blaylock and his band has yet produced.
Cryin’ Heart Blues was produced by Audie Blaylock, engineered by Scott Vestal and released on Rural Rhythm Records.
