Rural Rhythm Records announced on Friday that they have signed Dwight McCall to their label, and will release his next project, Never Say Never Again, in April of 2007. A single track from this CD, Blue Eyed Boston Boy, will be released on Prime Cuts Of Bluegrass, Vol. 86 in mid-March.
Dwight has spent the past ten years as a member of J.D. Crowe & The New South, playing mandolin and singing tenor, and appearing on both the Come On Down To My World and Lefty’s Old Guitar projects with Crowe.
Never Say Never Again includes a number of Dwight’s original songs, plus ones from Brink Brinkman, Jon Weisberger, Wayne Winkle and Craig Market. Assisting Dwight on the recording were Alan Bibey, Steve Gulley, Lou Reid, Rickey Wasson, Ron Stewart, Harold Nixon, Randy Kohrs, Brian Stephens and Missy Werner.
McCall’s father, Jim McCall, was also a Rural Rhythm artist, recording three albums for the label with Earl Taylor & Jim McCall with The Stoney Mountain Boys. Rural Rhythm President Sam Passamano commented on the multi-Generational connection.
“Dwight is a perfect fit for Rural Rhythm bridging our rich past history, Earl Taylor & Jim McCall, with our present. He delivers a fresh contemporary new tradition bluegrass sound as a new generation artist that appeals to all ages.”
There are audio samples for each track on Dwight’s web site.
