Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver recently released a new all-gospel CD, He Lives In Me. Since this week’s GrassCast Episode featured an interview with Terry Baucom, who plays banjo in the band, it seems appropriate to bring the CD to your attention. The interview was recorded last October at IBMA and Terry briefly mentions that the band was working on a new gospel project.
We were able to talk to Terry via email about this new CD. He says a lot of hard work went into the project and he’s happy to see the early success on the Billboard Charts [Ed: The CD debuted at #8 on the Bluegrass Chart and #15 on the Gospel Chart after being released only one week].
Terry also reminded us that
this will be the first opportunity for a lot of folks to hear the current line-up since Mike Hartgrove has returned on fiddle and Darren Beachley joined the band on bass and vocals.
Another thing special to Terry on the project are the instruments he used.
I actual use three different banjos on this project…the older Gibson that I used on the original Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver recordings and the Boone Creek recordings; the ‘Terry Baucom Model’ Gibson; and my 1962 RB250 Gibson Bowtie [Ed: Terry and John talk about this banjo in the GrassCast interview]. Doyle also used a Do-Jo, a really unique sounding instrument that combines the dobro and banjo, on two of the numbers. We also have some of the trademark Quicksilver accapella singing on there, as well.
The disc, He Lives In Me, is now available from Cross Roads Music and directly from Doyle’s website. You can also call Doyle’s office at 423-878-6160 to order an autographed copy.
