The album was recorded this summer during the Graves Mountain Festival Of Music in Virginia featuring many of the fine artists who record for Rural Rhythm. Lonesome River Band, IIIrd Tyme Out, The Crowe Brothers, Carrie Hassler, Lou Reid & Carolina, Audie Blaylock and Redline, Brand New Strings, Mark Newton and Carl Jackson all perform, often in mash-up configurations.
This first video is for the debut single, Graves Mountain Memories, a song Carl Jackson wrote especially for this project. It tells the story of the Graves family, whose history is intertwined with that of the Virginia mountains where they have lived these many generations.
This next contains snippets from many of the songs on the project, and ably captures the wide variety of music on this All Star Jam CD.
Pre orders are available now on the Rural Rhythm site.
