Pinecastle Records has announced today’s new single, “Martha and Mary” by Nu-Blu.

The story of Martha and Mary is one of the great Gospel stories of the Bible. Nu-Blu’s latest single, ‘Martha and Mary’ reminds us that there is a little bit of Martha and a little bit of Mary in each of us. Talk about getting a listener – any listener – to relate to the song’s message, Nu-Blu has a sure-fire winner in this song, destined to be a favorite among fans and radio programmers alike – Brian McNeal, Prescription Bluegrass.
The label released Nu-Blu’s The Blu Disc last year that included the impressive single “Other Woman’s Blues” that was also released as a music video. Pinecastle also released a holiday single, “Christmas in Dixie,” late last year as well. Just a few short weeks later, that holiday favorite reached the #1 spot on the Airplay Direct’s Top Bluegrass Album Chart.
This energetic bluegrass band, consisting of Daniel Routh, Carolyn, Routh, Levi Austin and Austin Koerner, has certainly proven to have crossover success in a variety of genres. They have been featured in numerous Bluegrass publications including the April 2012 issue of Bluegrass Unlimited Magazine. Their single, “Spin On A Red Brick Floor” from their Nights album debuted at #10 on the Euro Americana Chart and spent five weeks on the Americana Music Association’s Top 40 chart. Nu-Blu were the winners of the Country Band of the Year Award by the Carolina Music Awards in 2010 and were nominated by the organization again last year as the Country/Bluegrass/Americana Group of the Year.
