Rural Rhythm Records has announced the new Bluegrass single, “That Janie Baker” by Marty Raybon & Full Circle released this week to radio via the label’s Fresh Cut & Key Tracks CD and available at AirplayDirect.com. The song appears on Marty’s straight-up new Bluegrass album, THE BACK FORTY, releasing in March 2013 celebrating his 40 years entertaining audiences around the world.
Radio stations will certainly be excited to hear the first single release from the album. Terry Herd of Bluegrass Today and Bluegrass Radio Network just heard the tune and commented, “That Janie Baker’ is one of those songs you find yourself singing along with, even before you know the words.”
“My love for hard driving Bluegrass Music was fired up in the early 70’s when my Dad put in an old 8-track tape of Jimmy Martin and the Sunny Mountain Boys on. The excitement in the music seemed to leap out of the speakers,” said Marty. “While writing ‘That Janie Baker,’ John Fountain and I were not trying to reinvent the wheel; we were trying to recreate the excitement I felt over 40 years ago. ‘That Janie Baker’ is really something else.”
This new album comes on the heels of Marty’s two previous albums releases on the label including SOUTHERN ROOTS & BRANCHES that includes the bluegrass chart single, “Dirt Road Heartache.” The song hit #1 on both the Bluegrass Today weekly chart and the Bluegrass Today Monthly chart last year and is the #3 song on Bluegrass Today’s Top 30 of 2012. “Dirt Road Heartache” is also at #8 this month on the Bluegrass Unlimited Magazine’s Top 30 Songs chart. Marty’s HAND TO THE PLOW (Rural Rhythm Christian) debuted at #16 last year on Billboard’s Country Christian Album Chart, and hit numerous Country, Southern Gospel, Christian and Bluegrass Charts on New Music Weekly, Christian Voice Magazine, Power Source Magazine, Cashbox Magazine, Christian Music Weekly, and many more.
Marty has certainly crossed so many genres of music in his 40 year career as evidenced by him leading the way with seven CGM Fan Award nominations by Christian Voice Magazine. His categories include: Favorite Soloist, Favorite Male Vocalist, Favorite Crossover Artist, Favorite Musician, Favorite Song (I’ve Seen What He Can Do), Favorite Album (HAND TO THE PLOW), and Living Legend.
