Jonathan Bucker had several pieces of news about Chosen Road when we caught up recently.
He and the band have a new album, Love’s Purest Light, released this Summer on Poor Mountain Records. It’s their first studio project in three years, featuring a set of both old and new Gospel songs, and is available from popular resellers and download sites, or from the band directly online. Radio programmers can get it now from Airplay Direct.
Bucker also mentioned that the band has welcomed Brandon Green on banjo and reso-guitar. He tells us that Green, who is on the faculty in ETSU’s bluegrass music program, has almost been a member of the group for some time.
“Brandon has been a close friend and Christian brother for several years now. We have always called on him when we’ve needed help with session work or just someone to fill in on the road. For the past couple of years we have talked about the possibility of bringing Brandon with us on the road more frequently, but we just had to wait for the Lord to line everything up.
We are so excited about this new project. There are some great originals that folks have probably never heard before from some very gifted writers. There are also some songs folks will recognize, but probably haven’t heard in sometime. We really encourage everyone to check this new project out.”
Audio samples can be found online, where a CD purchase includes an instant download.
