This album contains those very special times throughout the day where the artists performed in an All-Star ensemble to create one-of-a-kind performances never before heard live or in the studio. The All-Star Jam – Live at Graves Mountain is a special commemorative album celebrating Bluegrass music and family traditions which have been passed down through many generations and still hold an important meaning in our lives today.
The album was recorded on 4th June 4, 2010 at the 18th Annual Graves Mountain Festival of Music in Syria, Virginia. This special day in Bluegrass was celebrated with performances by six chart-topping artists including: Russell Moore & IIIrd Tyme Out, Lonesome River Band, Lou Reid & Carolina, Carrie Hassler, Audie Blaylock and Redline, and The Crowe Brothers; along with a few special guests: Carl Jackson, Mark Newton, Brand New Strings, and marvelously emceed by popular Sirius-XM radio personality Kyle Cantrell.
It was a great day of music and camaraderie and I believe the songs contained on this CD have captured some very special momentsÂ that took place on stage between the artists and the fans and between the artists themselves – Russell Moore.
