Randy Kohrs in USA TODAY

Randy Kohrs in USA TODAYThe Listen Up feature in the April 17th edition of USA TODAY lists the author’s top ten music picks for the week. We don’t often see straight up bluegrass featured in such lists, so it’s nice to see Randy Kohrs on the list this time around.

Randy came in at #10 on the list with the song Shallow Grave. The song was written by Walt Aldridge & Kate Campbell, and is on Randy’s new CD, Old Photograph.

Here’s what the author of the article had to say about Randy, and the tune.

Shallow Grave, Randy Kohrs: One of Nashville’s finest Dobro players accompanies himself on this mournful tune of a love that’s dead but hardly laid to rest.

The print edition is long gone, but you can access the story online at the paper’s website, where you can also listen to the song in Windows Media format.
