Carl White and Rachel Maye leave Darrell Webb Band

Fiddler Rachel Maye and bass player Carl White have announced that they are leaving the Darrell Webb Band to focus on other musical opportunities. The two joined the group together back in March of 2017 and worked with Darrell throughout that year, both on the road and at his home base at the Ole Smoky Moonshine Distillery in Gatlinburg, TN.

Carl earned his stripes working for six years with Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver, and had performed with Rachel previously as members of Monroeville. Maye has been singing and playing bluegrass since she was a young girl in her native Missouri.

The pair recorded this brief video to explain the move this past Saturday.

You can keep up with Rachel and Carl on Facebook.

We’ll be sure to let everyone know when Darrell announces new members of his group.

    This has been a big rumer for awhile now , i think they are going into country rap which just starting to catch on down here and we love it.

    Please tell me country rap is not the next big thing. Country music has gone to hell in a handbasket but have people no pride whatsoever?

      It’s this Top 40 mentality that XM radio and websites like BT push. It leads straight downhill. It’s all about the lowest common denominator. But the CDs of artists you like, preferably at a show the performer was paid for. That’s the only way our favorite artists can continue to make music. Let the ripoff rappers have their Spotify and Pandora royalty checks.
