Lifted from her acclaimed album also titled No Headlights, Finger Picking Good features Australian super star and two-time Grammy Award nominee, Tommy Emmanuel.
I love this song; it was so much fun to write and even more fun to perform. Since I was a girl, I have been a huge fan of Tommy Emmanuel. When my co-writers Jerry Salley, Bill Wythe and I were writing this song, we spoke about how great it would be to feature Tommy on the different fingerpicking tunes throughout the track, I was so incredibly excited when he said yes.
A huge thanks to each and every person who voted for me and got me into the second round of the IBMA Awards for Female Vocalist of the Year – you guys are amazing – Kristy Cox.
The release of Finger Picking Good coincides with Kristy’s 2020 IBMA (International Bluegrass Music Awards) Awards Second Ballot nomination for Female Vocalist of The Year for her album, No Headlights. Kristy Cox has a great voice which is just what a good bluegrass song needs. The final ballot for the IBMA Awards will be revealed on July 21.
Finger Picking Good is out now through Mountain Fever Records.
