The band records and performs primarily original material from guitarist Mike Bentley, banjo player Rod Smith, mandolinist John Messer, and bassist Bryan Russell. They are joined on this record by Albon Clevenger on fiddle. The only two tracks not written within the band are contributions from Mark Brinkman and Dale Pyatt.
You’ll find a nice mix of contemporary Gospel and secular bluegrass here, with Smith’s banjo prominent throughout.
John Dig A Hole, the album’s lead track was released to bluegrass radio last Fall as a debut single. It, and the rest of Another Song, is available now to radio programmers at Airplay Direct.
