Rich Man’s Daughter from Volume Five

Volume FiveAnother new single dropping today is Rich Man’s Daughter, the first release from Volume Five’s next project, Run. It is due on Mountain Fever in February 2013.

The song tells the familiar tale of a poor suitor wooing a pretty girl from a wealthy family. He gets the girl, they run away together, but she ultimately longs for the good life she knew at home. It was written by former Volume Five guitarist Colby Laney (now with Larry Stephenson), and passionately delivered here by Glenn Harrell.

Assisting are the remaining members of the band: Jesse Daniel on mandolin, Patton Wages on banjo, Chris Williamson on bass and Jeff Partin on guitar and reso guitar. Harrell also plays fiddle on the track.


A copy of the single is going out to bluegrass radio, or programmers can listen and download the track now at Airplay Direct.

Mark Hodges at Mountain Fever tells us that they have a number of singles in the pipeline: one from Jett’s Creek later this week, and another from Cumberland Bap Connection next Tuesday.
