Fresh off their win as Entertainer of the Year at the IBMA awards last month, Balsam Range has released a second single today from their upcoming album, Aeonic, due in January from Mountain Home Music.
This time it’s a driving bluegrass number, Get Me Gone, a love lost tale of escape sung by fiddler Buddy Melton, written by Walt Wilkins, Jim McBride, and Jon Randall Stewart.
Melton, who came home from IBMA with the Male Vocalist of the Year award, says that this one really strikes his fancy.
“Sometimes a new day just can’t come soon enough to put the broken past behind us. Get Me Gone tells the story of regret and the desire to move on in an upbeat, fun and poetic fashion. I’m a big fan of lyrics that tell a story in creative and catchy ways. Co-written by Walt Wilkins (2011 IBMA Song of the Year, Trains I Missed), Get Me Gone is all that and more.”
