The theme of the album, produced by Jim VanCleve, is reuniting Webb with the many artists with whom he has toured and recorded over the past two decades. It will include a performance with Lonesome River Band, where he got his start on the national bluegrass scene while still a teenager, and a number of other headlining artists.
Today’s single is More Life, a powerful ballad written by Mike Reid, that features Rhonda Vincent on harmony vocals. Its story focuses on a man at the end of his life who, when asked by a nurse if there is anything else he needs, answers with the song’s title. It will touch anyone who has cared for an older member of their family, or experienced the loss of a loved one at an advanced age.
Look for the as yet untitled 20th Anniversary record in 2014.
