The January/February 2010 issue of Bluegrass Music Profiles is on newstands now, with Larry Stephenson’s smiling face on the cover.
Larry speaks about his career in bluegrass as he contemplates the release of his 20th Anniversary CD in a lengthy interview, where he also discusses the many changes in his life of late, including the birth of his daughter, his recent carpal tunnel surgery and his having appeared in the Tom T. and Dixie Hall movie that debuted at IBMA last fall.
“I’m just glad to still be doing what I’m doing after 20 years. I really had no idea where it was gonna go or what I was gonna do. I was living up in Virginia and I’d been thinking about starting my own band for a number of years and it just kind of fell into place and all worked out. Moving to Nashville was a great move and I just love being a part of this great music. It’s been good to me and it’s made my living I’m proud to say and I’m having as much fun these days as I ever had. I still enjoy every aspect of it. It’s a great life.”
The DJ Profile this issue is on Steve Pritchard and there is a promoter feature on Roger Moss of Podunk Bluegrass. Songwriter Mike Wells is profiled as well, along with Pinecastle Records President Tom Riggs, plus a new column from Bill McBee of Pine Mountain Railroad called Backstage Bluegrass. The 2010 BMP Festival Guide can also be found in the new issue, and there is a full color poster of The Gracsals.
