Dan Paisley and his band Southern Grass spent a brief time Downunder last year, wowing visitors to the Harrietville Festival with their own style of bluegrass. It is fitting that this year they are recognised for their talents and contribution to bluegrass music industry over the year. This recognition comes in the form of their nomination in the Vocal Group of the Year Category at this year’s IBMA awards show, coming up in October.
The band’s timely release of their new CD – their first for Rounder Records – is called The Room Over Mine. Some say, Paisley and his band play bluegrass traditional style with a touch of country soul. Nevertheless, their new CD is proving to be a success.
