From Big Country Bluegrass to Miranda Lambert

From the comments we get, it’s clear that many of our readers are fans of country music as well as bluegrass. So for those of you who follow the Nashville scene, here’s a fun story.

On superstar Mirada Lambert’s new album, Platinum, there’s a jumping track recorded with Nashville swing specialists, The Time Jumpers, called All That’s Left. It was written by Dixie and Tom T. Hall, but originally recorded by arch-traditionalists, Big Country Bluegrass.

Lambert heard the BCB version on the radio, and decided that a swing version would work well for next album.

You may get a kick out of the different arrangements selected by Ms. Lambert…


…and Big Country Bluegrass.


Same song, very different approaches. Which one floats your boat?
