Grascals on CBS Early Show

The Grascals - Aaron McDarris, Danny Roberts, Terry Eldridge, Terry Smith, Jamie Johnson, Jim MattinglyLook for the Grascals on Saturday, July 5, appearing on the CBS Saturday Early Show. They will perform the title track from their upcoming Rounder CD, Keep On Walkin’, due for a July 15 release.

Mandolinist Danny Roberts is looking forward to the show.

“It’s always a great opportunity for us to be on TV and any time that you can get to be in front of a national audience it’s not only good for The Grascals but good for Bluegrass music."

The guys will have one other song during the program, which airs from 7:00-9:00 a.m., but they haven’t decided which yet. Perhaps they are waiting to see how they respond to a 3:00 a.m. call time at the CBS Studio in New York?

Jamie Johnson doesn’t seemed fazed by the early hour.

“We’re looking forward to meeting the morning public for once, and can’t wait to wake them up ‚Äì like a big cup of Grascals coffee!! It’s an honor, indeed!!"

The Grascals will also be on CMT several times over this holiday weekend. They will appear several times throughout the day today on CMT’s special Southern Fried BBQ July 4 programming with southern cooking icon Hazel Smith – who also happens to be Grascal Terry Smith’s mom.

Then on Saturday night (7/6) from 5:00-8:00 p.m., CMT will air an edition of Hazel’s Southern Fried Flicks with The Grascals as special guests.
