Take The Long Way Home video from Alan Bibey & Grasstowne

Billy Blue Records is releasing a new single and music video tomorrow from Alan Bibey & Grasstowne, and we have it a day early for our readers to enjoy.

It’s for one of the tracks on their current album, Hitchhiking To California, a grassed up arrangement of the 1979 pop hit from Supertramp, Take The Long Way Home. For ’70s and ’80s kids, this one was everywhere, and while it may initially seem like an odd choice for a bluegrass cut, it works beautifully in the hands of these seasoned pros.

Alan says that he isn’t sure how this one popped into his mind.

“We’re really excited about the release of our new single, Take The Long Way Home. I never listened to rock much as a kid but this SuperTramp song must have snuck in somewhere.

We decided to give it a try in the studio and Ron Stewart, Zak, Justin, and Kati really made this song our own deal in the studio. They’re all incredible and it was a pleasure to cut this song with them.”

Have a look/listen…

Take The Long Way Home, and the full Hitchhiking To California album, are available from popular download and streaming sites online. Radio programmers will find the tracks at AirPlay Direct.
