The new CD from Charlie Sizemore, Good News, is out today (8/14) on Rounder. It’s been five years since there was a new studio project from this soulful bluegrass balladeer, songwriter and former Clinch Mountain Boy, and his many fans are not likely to be disappointed by this new release.
For more details on Good News, read this earlier post on the CD than was published on Bluegrass Today in June.
As of this morning, neither Rounder’s nor Charlie’s sites offer audio samples from Good News, but you can hear short clips from each song in iTunes. There is also a single song (I’ve Fallen And I Can’t Get Up) on Charlie’s MySpace page. Samples should be available elsewhere soon.
Update 8/27: Samples are now available on Rounder’s site.
Charlie has put together a short video that highlights his career in bluegrass – from the early days with Ralph Stanley to the present – plus highlights and discussion about the new release.
