I Can't Settle DownMusicians: Laura Orshaw on fiddle and vocals, Jenee Fleenor on fiddle and vocals, Brittany Haas on fiddle, Alan Bartram on bass, Reed Stutz on mandolin and Catherine BB Bowness on banjo.

I used to think of myself as a homebody, but in the past few years I’ve realized that I love waking up on the tour bus, not knowing exactly where I am until I walk out the door. This sentiment paired with the square dance fiddle tune melody, is what drew me to ‘I Can’t Settle Down’. Jenee Fleenor and Brittany Haas joined me for the triple fiddle section, and we created a rhythmic ‘wall of sound’ that’ll make you want to shuffle around the dance floor – Laura Orshaw.

Orshaw was a recent guest on Steve Martin’s Unreal Bluegrass to discuss the new single.

I Can’t Settle Down is the third single from Laura’s forthcoming album, Solitary Diamond, set to be released on 27th May, 2022.
