The latest CD from Lonesome River Band, No Turning Back, was released earlier this week on Rural Rhythm Records.
Band leader Sammy Shelor told us that he was psyched about the new album, and was especially pleased that Rural Rhythm was able to get the CD into much wider distribution than their last few projects.
Sam Passamano with Rural Rhythm talked to us about the early response.
“I am very pleased with the initial retail product coverage and strong support from our music accounts and our national distributor, RYKO Distribution. On street date we had strong product coverage with all the key racks, large, medium & small chains, independent stores and online retailers. It sure is nice to see the solid level of account commitment for the new LRB album being in line with a group that has been on top of the bluegrass world for over 25 years. We’re off to a very good start and in position for success with No Turning Back.”
Shelor has been hearing from radio hosts since promos went out several weeks back, saying that their listeners are reacting positively to the new music.
“When a band has been together this long, it’s encouraging that there is still so much interest in a new release. I’ve been doing radio interviews much of the past two weeks, and have plenty more still to do.”
