They Call It Music, from The Gibson Brothers, has been announced for a March 26 release from Compass Records.
As with their previous albums, this one will be primarily comprised of their original songs, along with contributions from Loretta Lynn, the Delmore Brothers, Joe Newberry and Shawn Camp. One thing different this time out is the subject matter of the original songs, an introspective and emotional set informed in part by the death of their father in 2012.
We caught up Eric, the banjo picking Gibson Brother, who shared a few words about the upcoming project.
“This is the most excited we’ve been about a collection of songs, both in terms of material and performance. We set out to record an album of harmony-drenched songs.
We are proud that this record was made entirely by our band. If people are fans of our live show, I think they will really enjoy They Called It Music.”
In addition to Eric and guitar-playing brother Leigh, the band includes Joe Walsh on mandolin, Mike Barber on bass, and Clayton Campbell on fiddle.
