New look for Josh Grigsby and County Line

Josh Grigbsy and County Line on the Old Dominion Barn DanceJosh Grigsby and County Line, based in Virginia’s Northern Neck, has added two new members to the group.

Mark Mills has come aboard to play lead guitar and share in the vocal duties, and Whitney Perkins is now with the group on reso-guitar. Both hail from Chesterfield, VA.

Perkins has only been playing since 2010, studying under Pete Smith, and won a scholarship from the Virginia Folk Music Association in 2011. She studied for two years in the ETSU Bluegrass, Old Time and Country Music program and favors the dobro stylings of Josh Graves.

Mills is an old hand in the bluegrass world, playing both guitar and mandolin. He spent 15 years with Copper Ridge and had played previously with New Spring Grass and JC Hale & the Blu Fescue.

Grigsby and County Line are celebrating the release of a new album this summer, Ruby Lane Memories, which contains a mix of band originals and lesser-known bluegrass favorites.

The group consists of Josh Grigsby on guitar and lead vocals, Crystal Grimsby on vocals, Judge Parker on banjo, Robert Kidd on bass, with Mark Mills on guitar, and Whitney Perkins on reso-guitar.
