Eddie Sanders has released his new bluegrass album, That Kind Of Lonesome with Engelhardt Music Group.
The highly anticipated bluegrass album That Kind of Lonesome from Eddie Sanders follows the outstanding success of Eddie’s all Gospel release (2020), which charted multiple singles, including the smash hit cover of Three Wooden Crosses. The popular cover spent 10 weeks in the #1 position on the Bluegrass Today Gospel Song Chart and was their #1 most played Gospel Song of 2020.
Once again, along with Eddie, That Kind Of Lonesome features a strong supporting cast of musicians and vocalists including, Ronnie McCoury, Scott Vestal, Dennis Crouch, Cody Kilby, Tim Crouch, Rob Ickes, Aubrey Haynie, Don McAfee, Glen Duncan, Garnet Imes Bowman, and Wes Hightower.
I’m really looking forward to sharing my new album That Kind Of Lonesome. All the songs are original and were either written by myself or co-written with some great friends and songwriters. With this album we have several songs that feel like home to me, showing a glimpse of where I come from, how I was raised, and the music I grew up listening to. The songs, the memories, the music; we hope you find something here that you enjoy – Eddie Sanders.

About Eddie Sanders:
Eddie Sanders is a world-class Singer/ Songwriter/Guitarist from McAlester, Oklahoma. Eddie was born into southwest bluegrass royalty, and his father is legendary bluegrass festival and concert promoter, Freddie Sanders. The Sanders Family Bluegrass Festival in McAlester was one of the biggest and best bluegrass festivals west of the Mississippi, and one of the favorite venues for bluegrass acts Bill Monroe, The Osborne Brothers, Lewis Family, Jim & Jesse, Ralph Stanley and nearly every major bluegrass act of the last 40 years. The McAlester festivals were shaped and guided by his major bluegrass influences: Mac Wiseman, Larry Sparks and The Osborne Brothers. He also developed a high level of professionalism that he is known for from the best acts in the business, while also learning the true power of a song and love for original material. Eddie was also strongly influenced by Merle Haggard and Gene Watson which motivated him to start writing his own songs.
For many years Eddie Sanders was the guitarist and lead vocalist with the widely-respected band, “Signal Mountain”. Eddie’s fellow band mates included: Shawn Camp (IBMA Male Vocalist of the Year, Earls of Leicester); Dennis Crouch (Elton John, Elvis Costello); Billy Joe Foster (Bill Monroe, Ricky Skaggs); Tim Crouch (The Whites, Mike Snider); and southwest bluegrass luminaries Donny Catron; Don McAfee; and The Bonham Brothers, Virgil and Glen! One of the finest bluegrass bands of that era to be sure!
Eddie’s songwriting skills increasingly brought him to Nashville for songwriting sessions with Shawn Camp, Ronnie Bowman, Dennis & Tim Crouch, Glen Duncan and Adam Engelhardt. Eddie wrote The Del McCoury Band’s hit single, “You Could Be Me”. Eddie has since had songs recorded by Amanda Cook, Kix Brooks & Wayne Toups, Joe Hott, Chris Roberts, Lou Reid, Terry Baucom & Glen Duncan.
Eddie’s work, both as a singer and a songwriter, combines the best elements of the old and the new. With a family tradition steeped in the history of bluegrass music, Eddie Sanders’ new recorded songs are a powerful statement of what the best bluegrass music has always been, and what the best bluegrass music will be in years to come.
