Acoustic Blue has released a new recording, Bein’ Country, their fifth album over a ten year history.
The band consists of Shaun Batho on guitar, Corey Zink on mandolin, Lary Neu on banjo and Ray Evans on bass. Vocals are shared among Zink, Neu and Evans.
This newest project was produced by Sammy Shelor from Lonesome River Band at Mountain Fever Studios, and features guest fiddle work from LRB’s Mike Hartgrove. Shelor also adds his award-winning banjo on one song.
Shaun sent along a couple of samples to offer up a taste of the record.
First, here’s the title track, written by Zink, with Gena Britt on harmony vocals…
