Pinecastle Records released a bluegrass album on June 9, 2015, that includes  “Runnin’ Water” by Lorraine Jordan and Carolina Road, featuring the Kentucky Headhunters. Wait, that’s a lot of name in one sentence, isn’t it? Well for all that, the song better be good. Wait until you watch the video below.

Bluegrass music has almost been largely ignored by country music radio. Record labels see it as too hillbilly, too twangy, or too country. The good news, there are still artists who stick with the genre and proudly record more tracks with its unique sound.

Lorraine Jordan

Hailing out of North Carolina, Lorraine Jordan and her hard-driving mandolin style created a new hope for bluegrass music. She is most familiar to bluegrass aficionados, who admire her classic instrumentation and versatile voice that can harmonize with different artists.

Further, Jordan is one of the most accomplished bluegrass musicians Eastern North Carolina has produced. Some of the numerous accolades she received were the International Bluegrass Music Association’s Recorded Event of the Year award in 2006 and 2009, 2015 Female Traditional Vocalist of the Year Bluegrass award, and the first runner-up title at MerleFest’s Chris Austin Songwriting Contest.

Also, Jordan has led the Daughters of Bluegrass project. This is a series of recordings and concerts that pay homage to female bluegrass musicians throughout the United States.

Carolina Road

Lorraine Jordan’s collaboration with Carolina Road added to her success. She founded the group in 1999. The band’s members include guitarist Tommy Long, fiddler Josh Goforth, bassist Eddie Biggerstaff, and banjo player Ben Greene, who won the 2015 Banjo of the Year Bluegrass Award. Carolina Road signed a record deal with Rural Rhythm Records in 2010. Their most recent album is Carolina Hurricane.

The band has been busy touring around North America and Europe. They also have their yearly appearances on the Traditional Bluegrass Cruise, Osborne Brothers Bluegrass Festival, and other prestigious events.

So fellas, fill your background with bluegrass sounds with this classic bluegrass and country music collaboration.
