Phil Leadbetter exits Grasstowne

Phil Leadbetter, resonator guitarist and founding member of Grasstowne, today announced that he will no longer be a member of the group.

Phil Leadbetter with his signature Dobro“I want to announce that today, I am stepping down as a member and partner in the band Grasstowne. I started this band along with my friends Steve Gulley and Alan Bibey in December 2006.

I have had a good run of 3 years and 2 successful CDs here, but I have decided to pursue a few others interests. Some of these are musical, and some are non-musical. It just seems like the right time.”

We hope to hear shortly from Grasstowne about their next move.
