Valerie Smith’s BLAME IT ON THE BLUEGRASS Arriving 1.11.11

Bell Buckle Records is pleased to announce the new single release, “Blame It On the Bluegrass” by VALERIE SMITH & Liberty Pike. The song was written by Becky Buller and Elizabeth Shrum and is the title track from Valerie’s long awaited new album produced by Becky Buller and set for release January 11, 2011.

Blame it On The Bluegrass is like a breath of fresh air.  It’s a cleverly-written, expertly performed song featuring the voice of one of the music’s most unique and underrated singers.  This is one that can’t-miss,” said Kyle Cantrell, Sirius-XM Radio.

“If you’re someone who enjoys numerical significance, the release date of VALERIE SMITH & Liberty Pike’s CD, BLAME IT ON THE BLUEGRASS, 1-11-11, should be pretty hard to top. Not only are the members of this band #1 supporters of the International Bluegrass Music Museum, they also made history here back in January of 2010.  While VSLP was in Owensboro performing for 24 elementary schools as part of our Bluegrass in the Schools program, they met each evening in ‘The Cave’ at the museum. There, surrounded by artifacts of bluegrass legends, undaunted by illness, fatigue, ice and snow, they came together with enormous energy and creativity and made history by becoming the first band to ever record a CD inside the hallowed walls of the IBMM. We wish them every success with their new and wonderful CD,” said Gabrielle Gray, Executive Director of the International Bluegrass Music Museum in Owensboro, Kentucky.
