For years, Tim played second fiddle to his brother Marty, who sang lead in bands they played in together. Tim took the harmony, and played bass for years in The Marty Raybon Band, until striking out on his own. It’s paid off well for both brothers, with Marty now back with Shenandoah, and Tim killing it in the bluegrass.
Headed Back To Tulsa an upbeat, swingy song Raybon wrote, about a man who is voicing his excitement about Leaving Tennessee to marry his sweetheart in Tulsa. Tim sings it in his distinctive tenor voice, supported by a crack band including Andy Leftwich on mandolin and fiddle, Cody Kilby on guitar, Russ Carson on banjo, Gaven Largent on reso-guitar, and Ben Isaacs on bass.
Raybon’s previous four singles have all gone to #1 on our Bluegrass Today Weekly Airplay chart, and this latest sounds like a hit as well.
