Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

SnapshotsNashville, TN -- In spite of the worst snow and ice storm the southern states have seen in decades, Darin and Brooke Aldridge have debuted at No. 8 on the Billboard Bluegrass Albums Chart with their sixth new release, Snapshots. A flurry of promotional activity had been planned for release week, but instead a flurry of ice and snow found the Aldridge's and their band stranded somewhere between Nashville and Asheville on I-40 when the storm hit. They were forced to cancel a number of appearances and events, including the world renowned Station Inn and WSM Radio.

Husband and wife duo Darin & Brooke Aldridge draw on the traditions of their native North Carolina, the savvy of a young, gifted band and their own dedication to ingenuity to create the most mature release of their career.

The duo has placed at the top of the charts on Americana/Roots, SiriusXM, Bluegrass and Gospel charts. They have received multiple nominations from the International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) the Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music of America (SPGBMA) and Inspirational Country Music (ICM). The music video “Wildflower” is being featured on CMT and CMT Edge and GAC. Their TV appearances include PBS, Great American Gospel, The Bluegrass Road, Presley’s Country Jubilee, RFD-TV, Rural-TV, Daystar Network, Blue Highways TV, Song of the Mountains and Music City Roots.

"Darin & Brooke's Snapshots equally energizes country classics (“Tennessee Flat-Top Box”) and deeper cuts (“Wait Till the Clouds Roll By”) with contemporary bluegrass flair."
  - Ryan Atkinson, CMT Edge

Still, fans clearly flocked to the album, which includes intimate slice-of-life songs that have become the hallmark of Darin & Brooke Aldridge.

"Combining tradition and innovation, Darin & Brooke bring together the best of both worlds with undeniably strong musicianship and vocals alongside edgy melodies and song selection meant for a new and wider audience."
  - Dan Harr, Music News Nashville

As The South begins to thaw, the Darin and Brooke Aldridge band continues on with its 2015 tour. For more information on Darin & Brooke visit: www.darinandbrookealdridge.com
