Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Darin & Brooke AldridgeCombining tradition and innovation, bringing the best of both worlds together with undeniably strong musicianship and vocals along side edgy melodies and song selection meant for a new and wider audience. That defines Flying the most recent project by the sweethearts of bluegrass, Darin & Brooke Aldridge.

Jim Lauderdale says, "Darin and Brooke bring tradition to today and today to tradition. ... I can't really do justice in trying to describe the essence of this record in words; you just have to hear it to know what I mean. Listening to the lush harmonies of two people that incorporate their love and faith into their music is something very special and rare. Darin and Brooke have an unmistakable heart connection that is one of a kind."

FlyingReaching out past their roots for a new sound that builds on their bluegrass foundation, Darin and Brooke take Flying to new heights with songs like their brilliant cover of Nancy Griffith's "Outbound Plane," acoustic-rock selections like the lead off track "Just a Little," and several original songs from fellow band mate and much recorded songwriter Becky Buller.

North Carolina natives Darin and Brooke Aldridge have already had quite an active and inspiring year with tour dates that have allowed them to meet fans old and new in states throughout the Southeast. Their video for “Wildflower” was featured on CMT and added to the regular music video rotation. .

They have also experienced an inspiring chart accomplishment when “When He Beckons Me Home,” from their Live at Red, White and Bluegrass album, hit number one on the Singing News Bluegrass Chart earlier this year. The band continues to operate at full steam with Flying set for release this September. The new CD delivers more of the impeccable playing and stellar harmonies that have come to characterize the band.

Theme by Danetsoft and Danang Probo Sayekti inspired by Maksimer
