Country Music News International Song of the Week
Still FallingDarin & Brooke Aldridge
Hello! I’m Camo, one of the hosts of Nashville Access. This week’s pick comes from Darin & Brooke Aldridge.
Every so often, Bluegrass artists become a sort of “bridge” between country music and bluegrass music. Artists like Rhonda Vincent, Ricky Skaggs, and even further back, New Grass Revival. Darin & Brooke Aldridge fall into this category.This talented husband and wife duo from North Carolina impressed me with their first album couple of years ago. Their new album, Faster And Farther, impressed me even more! And it’s not just me who they impress—Vince Gill is a huge fan, too! This album is filled with bluegrass music that crosses into country, tight harmonies—almost “blood harmonies,” and solid writing from people like Pat Flynn (New Grass Revival), Carl Jackson (Grammy Award winner/Glen Campbell), Ian Tyson, John Cowan (New Grass Revival), Jerry Salley, and others.This album isn’t just “good”…I’m pretty sure it’ll end up in my Top 5 of 2017 list next year! I interviewed Darin & Brook at the International Bluegrass Music Association’s office a couple of weeks ago. Darin & Brooke performed Still Falling (and Ian Tyson’s Someday Soon) live in the interview. That’s the first time an artist has made the hair on the back of my neck stand up during an interview. You can watch them and their live performance over on the Nashville Access YouTube channel.
Check out “Still Falling” by Darin & Brooke Aldridge. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if they get a lot of cross-over success. You heard it here first.
