Ain’t That Crazy from Gold Heart

Places I've Been - Gold HeartGold Heart has a first single out today from their upcoming Mountain Fever Album, Places I’ve Been.

The band consists of the three Gold sisters from northern Virginia, with their dad, Trent, on bass. All three sing, with Tori on mandolin, Jocey on guitar, and Shelby on fiddle. For Places I’ve Been, they are supported on banjo by album producer Ron Stewart.

The single is a song from middle sister, Jocey Gold, who she says she wrote it as a teen.

Jocey GoldAin’t That Crazy was written when I was just sixteen. I was asked by a Nashville producer to write a song for one of his artists. Sipping coffee, strummin’ my guitar and daydreaming about how much fun growing up was, Ain’t That Crazy was written. The lyrics flowed so naturally with the melody I was feeling. They went hand in hand, just like make believe in the life of a child.

As the song came together, I realized I had just told a part of my own childhood story. It unfolded in two verses, a chorus and an energetic melody. The song was an instant favorite with our band and before I knew it, my intention to pitch the song had changed. This one was a keeper!”

Jocey also sings this one, which has a driving, modern bluegrass beat.


Ain’t That Crazy is available for sale now in iTunes, where pre-orders for the full album can also be placed. Places I’ve Been is scheduled for release May 26 on Mountain Fever.

Radio programmers can download the single from Airplay Direct.
