The RigneysNashville, TN -- The first single from rising bluegrass band, The Rigneys, is now available for radio download on Airplay Direct. “Double or Nothing”, also the title track for their upcoming album on Dark Shadow Recording, was co-written by Andrew Rigney and their producer/label owner, Stephen Mougin. The full project will be available for radio download prior to its official release date of September 10, 2013.

The Rigneys are a high energy bluegrass band that offers an appealing blend of tight family vocal harmonies and innovative bluegrass instrumentation. The Rigney's have a great sense of balancing the traditional with fresh new sounds that exhilarates your soul with energy, laughter, and emotion. The Rigneys, a family band, are comprised of award-winning brothers, Andrew (guitar, vocals) and Grant (mandolin, fiddle, vocals), and their parents Mark (banjo, vocals) and Melissa (bass).

“It was a priority for me to have the group dig deep and contribute some original material for this album,” explains Mougin, who is also the longtime guitar player with the Sam Bush Band. “Andrew really stepped up to the plate with my challenge, writing two songs with me and contributing five strong songs overall.”

“Double or Nothing” is also one of the few chosen songs to be performed in the IBMA Songwriter Showcase at the World of Bluegrass event in Raleigh, NC, this September, an honor of which both writers are proud.

Dark Shadow Recording launches the label with the signing of The Rigneys!

“I brought a general idea to the table and mojo and I sat down with a cup of Jo and hashed out the details,” Andrew says, telling the story behind the song. “We wrote the words together and thought that the gambling metaphor was a great way to describe the messed up love relationship in the song. I can't wait to see how audiences enjoy this gambling love affair!”
