I spoke earlier this week with Ty Gilpin of Crossroads Music, and he shared some news sure to be of interest to bluegrass fans. First up is word that the next Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver CD, Light On My Feet, Ready To Fly, will be released soon on Horizon Records.
Sometimes it seems like 10% of the news we publish on Bluegrass Today falls into the “new member of Quicksilver” category, and yet year-after-year, Doyle puts a tight, professional band on stage. This new, all-Gospel project was recorded with the most recent iteration on the band: Dale Perry on banjo, Jason Leek on bass, Josh Swift on resonator guitar, Corey Hensley on guitar and Doyle on mandolin.
The title cut will be released as a single, written and sung by Corey Hensley. It shows that Quicksilver 2010 is as strong as ever.

Doyle and the boys also have a Gospel DVD to release later this year, again with Crossroads. We will have more details about both of these new projects later today.
Gilpin told us that Balsam Range will be in the studio soon as well. They will start recording this summer, with a fall release on Mountain Home anticipated.
UPDATE 11:35 a.m. – The release date for Light On My Feet, Ready To Fly is March 30.
