Danny Paisley and the Southern Grass Release Weary River

Danny Paisley - Weary RiverWhat you have here is the real deal...great bluegrass music of the purest type. It's a rare form of bluegrass these days, but it's the kind that many of us grew up with, still remember, and still prefer. And It's not too often that you find current active bands doing this style of music. I'm talking about REAL bluegrass music. Real bluegrass music is about soul and honest emotion. It's the kind of sound that gives you goosebumps and makes the hair stand up on the back of your neck. And to get that sound it takes a group of musicians who get along and respect each other, working together as team to deliver soulful and emotional music with hard-hitting, raw energy. The Southern Grass is one of the few bands today that delivers this kind of bluegrass.
