1. Cry Baby Cry 3:37
(Elmer C. Burchette Jr., Elmer C. Burchetter Jr. Publishing BMI)
Alan Bibey- mandolin, lead vocal / Justin Jenkins- banjo
Kameron Keller- bass / Ron Stewart- fiddle, guitar / Shannon Slaughter- tenor vocal
Elmer sent us this tune and we immediately picked it out for the new project. It has a great groove, and the exceptional playing of Justin Jenkins and Ron Stewart set the tone for this song.

2. Old Hen 2:27
(Traditional)
Alan Bibey- mandolin / Justin Jenkins- banjo
Kameron Keller- bass / Ron Stewart- fiddle, guitar
This is an old tune Justin brought to the band and we gave it our own spin. Justin’s banjo playing is extraordinary on this tune and Ron’s guitar break is great! Really, Ron?! Guitar, too?!

3. You Can Feel It In Your Soul 2:48
(Stacey, Bluewater Music Corp. OBO Golden West Melodies, Inc)
Alan Bibey- mandolin, lead vocal / Justin Jenkins- guitar, baritone vocal
Kameron Keller-bass / Ron Stewart- bass vocal / Shannon Slaughter- tenor vocal
This is one of our favorite Flatt and Scruggs gospel songs. This time Justin gets a turn on the guitar and kills it! Ron Stewart is our guest all-star bass singer on this track.

4. I'm Country 3:04
(Wes Golding, Wes Golding Publishing, BMI)
Alan Bibey-mandolin, lead vocal / Justin Jenkins- banjo, baritone vocal
Kameron Keller- bass / Ron Stewart- fiddle, guitar / Shannon Slaughter- tenor vocal
My history with this tune goes way back. I recorded it 30 years ago with The New Quicksilver. I heard it done live before that by Boone Creek as well as being recorded first by the Shenandoah Cut Ups. Wes Golding was a member of both of those great bands. After hearing Boone Creek's live version I learned it and played it in a band with my Dad around the age of 16. We put our own Grasstowne arrangement to it and hope everyone likes it.

5. Look What I've Done To Me 3:24
(Alan Bibey, Ronnie Bowman - LoarTone Pub. BMI / RayLynn Pub./William Franklin Pub.)
Alan Bibey- mandolin, lead vocal / Justin Jenkins- banjo, baritone vocal
Kameron Keller- bass / Ron Stewart- fiddle, guitar / Dwight McCall- tenor vocal
This is a tune I came up with that was written to be a positive message about being true to yourself and your beliefs. I think a lot of people can relate to it. Thank you to my old friend Ronnie Bowman for helping me finish it and to my cousin-in-law Dwight McCall for singing with me. It was fun to sing with such a great guy and talented singer.

6. Cold Dark Ground 2:54
(Alan Bibey, Ronnie Bowman, Mark Collie - LoarTone Pub. BMI / RayLynn Pub./William Franklin Pub./ RayLynn Pub./TamMar Music BMI)
Alan Bibey-mandolin, baritone vocal / Justin Jenkins- banjo
Kameron Keller- bass / Ron Stewart- fiddle, guitar / Blake Johnson- lead vocal
This was our second single off this album and the first #1 I'd ever been a part of as a songwriter. Again, this is an idea I had for a while but mainly just a chorus so Ronnie helped me re-write it. We thought it was finished until Mark Collie came over and his ideas for the song were phenomenal. It was such a great experience finishing this tune again with Mark being involved. It's so different and one of my favorite tunes I've ever had a part of writing or performing.

7. You Let Me Down 3:06
(Alan Bibey, Ronnie Bowman - LoarTone Pub. BMI / RayLynn Pub./William Franklin Pub.)
Alan Bibey- mandolin, lead vocal / Justin Jenkins- banjo
Kameron Keller- bass / Ron Stewart- fiddle, guitar / Shannon Slaughter- tenor
This is a swingy type tune or turned into to that once I let Ronnie Bowman hear my idea. A story of you done me wrong and you're gonna be so sorry. Haha. One of Ronnie and my favorites on the album.

8. Can't Stop The Rain 2:41
(Kim Fox, Alan Bibey, Ronnie Bowman - Dennis Morgan Music BMI / LoarTone Pub. BMI / RayLynn Pub./William Franklin Pub.)
Alan Bibey- mandolin, baritone vocal / Justin Jenkins- banjo, low tenor vocal
Kameron Keller- bass / Ron Stewart-fiddle, guitar / Shannon Slaughter- high lead vocal
This is a tune we came up with at Ronnie’s house one day when the awesome Kim Fox was there. I think she came up with the hook and we went to it from there. It has a bit of a “Born To Be With You” vibe. Again great picking by these guys. Notice Ron Stewart paying homage to Kenny Baker in a little of that fiddle break. Love it!

9. This Old Guitar and Me 3:23
(Dave Carroll, Madkal Music, BMI)
Alan Bibey- mandolin, baritone vocal / Justin Jenkins- banjo / Kameron Keller- bass
Adam Haynes- fiddle / Ronnie Bowman- guitar, lead vocal / Dustin Pyrtle- tenor vocal
I talked to David after he had seen us do a show with Ronnie in Kentucky a few years back and he said he went right home and wrote this with us in mind. As soon as he sang it for me I knew it was a great tune and thought it fitting that Ronnie sing it. It was our first single and #1 off this project.

10. Heaven 3:23
(Stacey Peek BMI)
Alan Bibey- mandolin, tenor / Shannon Slaughter- guitar, lead / Heather Slaughter- high baritone
This is a tune Shannon brought to the band while he was playing with
us and it was the first tune he ever wrote.

11. Worried Man Blues 3.44
(AP Carter, Peermusic Publishing)
Alan Bibey- mandolin, lead vocal / Justin Jenkins- banjo, baritone vocal
Kameron Keller- bass / Ron Stewart- fiddle, guitar / Dwight McCall- tenor vocal
We love to play these driving old traditional tunes because it's where
we all came from musically and where we feel most comfortable.
This type of tune reminds me of growing up playing bluegrass as a kid
and the love we have for it. Thanks again to the great Dwight McCall
for singing with me.

12. Darby's Castle 3:36
(Kris Kristofferson, Universal Music Publishing group)
Alan Bibey- mandolin, baritone vocal / Justin Jenkins- banjo, low tenor vocal
Kameron Keller- bass / Ron Stewart-fiddle, guitar / Shannon Slaughter- high lead vocal
This is one of the first tracks we laid down for this album. It's been a favorite song since I first heard the Knoxville Grass do it many years ago.
