Nashville, TN -- Nu-Blu, one of bluegrass music's breakout acts, was joined by Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member Sam Moore this past week in Nashville for a special taping of Reno's Old Time Country Music show. On this soon to be historic episode, both Nu-Blu and Sam Moore perform their latest collaboration "Jesus and Jones," as well as take the audience through a few twists and turns when they, for the first-time ever in a bluegrass acoustic sound, perform the Sam & Dave classic "Hold On, I'm Coming," and end the show with "Will The Circle Be Unbroken."
"We had so much fun cutting up and talking about some of everything with Ronnie. It was probably a good thing the show was taped in advance cause I couldn't stop laughing and it's not easy to sing and be so tickled at the same time," said an excited Sam Moore.
The pairing began earlier in the year, when Nu-Blu and Sam Moore recorded "Jesus and Jones," to pay tribute to the late country music legend George Jones.
Nu-Blu's latest album, All The Way, has continued to create and maintain momentum since its release, having spent its first 3 week on the Top Billboard Bluegrass Albums chart.
What the Media is Saying:
"...the highlight of this project is "Jesus And Jones" featuring Sam Moore. We certainly need more of this kind of depth in bluegrass."
"Making All the Way even more special was the magical way that everything -- from the recording process to having performers like Sam Moore and Rhonda Vincent included just all came together."
"Nu-Blu have marched to their own tune since they first hit the bluegrass scene, going where few bands had traveled before, and bringing in influences from all across the music world. It's always fun to see what they'll be up to next."

"You may not know who NU-BLU is yet and if you don't look them up on the NET, listen to their wonderful tune, "Jesus And Jones," that includes vocals from Sam Moore, immediately establishes their talent and roots and should put them on the map."
