Rural Rhythm Records has announced the release of Drowned In Sorrow the new single from Steve Gulley And New Pinnacle. Written by Steve Gulley and Tim Stafford, Drowned In Sorrow is the first single from the groups upcoming third Rural Rhythm Records album titled Time Won’t Wait scheduled for release in October.
During one of our writing sessions, my buddy, Tim Stafford, and I were going through song ideas and subject matter, as is usually the case. Tim had the title, Drowned In Sorrow, written in his notes and it instantly stuck. Before we even wrote any of the initial lyrics, we agreed that the hook line felt like a straight ahead bluegrass tune. The finished product came together just as we heard in the beginning. I think it’s a classic, up-tempo, traditional sounding song with an awesome intensity all its own. It’s going to be one that’s a lot of fun to play and sing every night – Steve Gulley.
Produced by Steve Gulley, Drowned In Sorrow contains performances by group members, Steve Gulley on lead vocal, Guitar, Bryan Tuner on harmony vocal and bass, Gary Robinson, Jr. on mandolin and Matthew Cruby on harmony vocal and banjo with special guest Tim Crouch on fiddle.
The up-tempo and hard-drivin’ Drowned In Sorrow has the same signature sound and feel as the lead singles from Steve Gulley And New Pinnacles previous albums both containing #1 singles, Leaving CrazyTown and Aim High, on the Bluegrass Today Weekly Airplay Chart.
Steve Gulley and New Pinnacle are currently on tour. For more information go to Steve Gully’s Website. The single is available for DJ downloads on AirPlay Direct.
