Rural Rhythm Records is very proud to announce today’s new release, “STILL LEARNING” by the Lonesome River Band. This super group is lead by the award-winning banjoist Sammy Shelor who is joined by: Brandon Rickman (guitar, lead vocals), Andy Ball (mandolin, lead vocals), Mike Hartgrove (fiddle) and Mike Anglin (bass, vocals). Rickman explains the meaning behind his original song, “I’m Still Learning” that was of course the inspiration for the title. “We all thought that this song really describes LRB today. Learning something new every day and seeing things a whole new way has been the creative path and our attitude ever since the five of us got together.”
The Lonesome River Band was back on top with their last album, “NO TURNING BACK” reaching #1 on numerous charts including staying #1 on the Bluegrass Unlimited Top 15 Album Chart for 3 months in a row. The album included two chart singles, “Them Blues,” (the #1 song for 2 months in a row), plus the hit, “Like a Train Needs a Track.” “STILL LEARNING” certainly picks up where “NO TURNING BACK” left off. The first single, “Record Time Machine,” written by Marvin E. Clark (who also co-wrote “Like a Train Needs a Track”) has received rave reviews from key radio hosts including:
“Man, I love it!! It’s a HIT!!” – Kyle Cantrell, Sirius-XM Radio “Bluegrass Junction”
“FABULOUS! That’s a winner!!” – Terry Herd, Bluegrass Radio Network “Into the Blue”
“STILL LEARNING” is available at all fine outlets including iTunes, Amazon, and many more.
Next year the Lonesome River Band will celebrate their 30th Anniversary and these band members are certainly carrying on tradition with “STILL LEARNING.” Their new single and album will surely dominate the bluegrass charts again and we are still learning how high the ceiling is for this top group.
The Lonesome River Band can also be heard on the upcoming new album, “GRAVES MOUNTAIN – LIVE” recorded live last month at the Graves Mountain Festival of Music in Syria, Virginia celebrating Rural Rhythm Records 55th Anniversary.
