The momentum for all-star female Bluegrass group Sister Sadie which features Dale Ann Bradley, Tina Adair, Gena Britt, Deanie Richardson, and Beth Lawrence, continues to grow, as the band celebrates the release of their latest critically-acclaimed album, Sister Sadie II.
Since the above release in August, this second album has turned heads in a big way, garnering rave reviews by top publications, and debuting at No. 2 on the Billboard Bluegrass Albums chart.
The first taste of Sister Sadie II came in the form of lead single, Losing You Blues. The song features powerhouse vocalist Tina Adair singing lead on the anthemic tune. In the past week, it has gained recognition from Rolling Stone as one of their ‘10 Best Country and Americana Songs of the Week.’ The publication goes on to say that the track “showcases not only Sister Sadie’s layered harmony singing, but their strength as top-shelf instrumentalists.” The track recently hit No. 1 on Roots Music Report’s Top 50 Contemporary Bluegrass Songs chart.
The second single from Sister Sadie II will be No Smoky Mountains, which will serve as the follow-up on Bluegrass radio. The track is already being well-received, with Parade praising the song’s “sweet harmonies, fantastic lyrics and a wistful message focusing on a lifetime of love.” The well-known outlet gave fans a first look at the official video with an exclusive world premiere. No Smoky Mountains includes 5-time IBMA “Female Vocalist of the Year” Dale Ann Bradley singing lead. Digital Journal calls Bradley’s vocals “crystalline and atmospheric.”
