Open Carefully, Message Inside from DL&QS

doyle_open_carefullyIt’s that time again… Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver have a brand new CD.

With close to forty albums to his credit already, you might think that people would tire of the news for each new record. But not with Doyle Lawson. At 70 years of age, half of them with Quicksilver, Lawson still generates excitement when-or-wherever the band plays.

And a new Quicksilver project is still a big deal.

This week, Mountain Home Music has announced a July 15 release for Open Carefully, Message Inside – Doyle’s 20th Gospel recording, and his 36th with Quicksilver.

As always, he has a strong band of pickers and singers on hand in the studio, just as he does on stage. Josh Swift is on reso-guitar, Jason Barrie on fiddle, Joe Dean on banjo, Dustin Pyrtle on guitar, and Eli Johnston on bass. Dustin, Eli and Joe handle the vocals, along with Doyle of course, who also takes care of the mandolin.

Even though the album title sounds like a great name for a Gospel song, Doyle says that it occurred to him in a moment of inspiration.

“The idea for the title came to me while driving from Bristol, Tennessee to Asheville, North Carolina for the CD cover photo shoot.

I have always believed that the songs must have a message – something to say and not just rhyme – and I really feel that these eleven songs do just that. More than anything, I hope they touch your heart in a way that won’t ever leave you in your walk through life.

May the Lord bless you all now and forever.”

If the past is any indication, you can expect that Open Carefully, Message Inside will rack up its share of awards – just like Doyle’s previous projects.
