Wow – well deserved recognition for the Lonesome River Band. They have the #1 ALBUM (“NO TURNING BACK“) on July’s Bluegrass Unlimited Magazine (BU) Top 15 album chart marking the third consecutive month holding the #1 spot! The band is also celebrating the #1 SINGLE, “Them Blues” on the July Bluegrass Unlimited Magazine Top 30 Singles Chart. Yet another single, “Like a Train Needs a Track” climbs again reaching #19 on the same chart.
We can’t agree more with The Bluegrass Special who recently said, “In its 25-year history of making memorable music the Lonesome River Band has arguably never been stronger than it is on NO TURNING BACK. If this album doesn’t earn a place on a lot of year-end Best Of lists, something’s amiss, because few other albums in any genre boast finer singing, songwriting, playing or more conviction than this gem.” We hope that this year brings lots of International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) Awards for this band! We know we are voting for LRB!!
With all of this good news, there is more! Next week Rural Rhythm Records will release the debut solo album by Brandon Rickman titled “YOUNG MAN, OLD SOUL” on June 30th. The first single, “Always Have, Always Will“ is already receiving incredible feedback from radio, media and fans and is already a top song on our iTunes!
Many congrats to: Sammy Shelor , Brandon Rickman, Mike Hartgrove, Andy Ball and Mike Anglin!
