BMP Publisher Kevin Kerfoot described the Scruggs feature thusly:

“This is a wonderful seven-page interview like no other. Earl gets personal with BMP discussing his health, his banjo, Bill Monroe, Lester Flatt, the early days, The Ryman, Josh Graves, the Beverly Hillbillies, Earl Scruggs Revue, his sons, his late wife Louise, The Three Pickers project, his Hollywood Walk of Fame, his favorite sport, his dog Bonnie, Jimmy Martin, and more.”

The fall issue also includes features on John Cowan, who talks about his new release, New Tattoo, and Aubrey Holt, whose latest CD with The Wildwood Valley Boys, Daylight’s Burnin’ was released earlier this year.
