Audio samples for all 13 tracks of the upcoming debut project from Grasstowne, The Road Headin’ Home, are now posted on the band’s web site.
Grasstowne is made up of Steve Gulley on guitar, Alan Bibey on mandolin, Phil Leadbetter on resonator guitar, Jason Davis on banjo and Lee Sawyer on bass. The band was formed in December of 2006 when Steve, Alan and Phil decided to leave their respective bands (Mountain Heart, BlueRidge and Wildfire) and strike out on their own.
Alan told me last week that the new CD is being manufactured now, and that they would have copies for sale by mid-April. Pre-orders are enabled now on the Grasstowne site.
From conception to a new CD in four months – that may be a bluegrass record!
The official release on Pinecastle Records is set for June.
