It’s a song from the catalog of Charlie Pride, The Happiness Of Having You, written by Ted Harris. Charlie’s cut was in 1975, in the days of the heavily-produced country pop sound, but Linda gives it a solid medium-tempo bluegrass reading, backed by a crack band. Sammy Shelor is on banjo, David Lay on guitar, Darren Beachley on reso-guitar, Aaron Ramsey on mandolin, and Bryan McDowell on fiddle. Linda plays bass and sings lead, with Darren and David providing harmony vocals.
Have a listen to why Linda has been such a celebrated artist in and around her northern Virginia home for so many years.
