Song Origins

1 I've Got A Thing About Doors - Another great song from Mr. Tom T. and Miss Dixie
Just take a look at all the various doors inside their studio and you might figure out
what inspired this song.

2 Already Gone - Great new, old traditional 3/4 song by my friend and good writing buddy Dale Haverstick, from my part of the Ozarks.

3 Cool Wind - Love the bluesy feel to this song written by another great friend andwriter from the Ozarks, Charlene Summey.

4 Stobro's Ramble - Good one buddy. It’s ‘bout time ya put yer name on a Ramble.

5 A Little Bit More - Wow! This is so “Jimmy Martin'ish”, as Mr. Tom T. told me.
This was the last song written by Jimmy. (Jimmy and the Hall's were close friends)As is often the case with many writers, they bring their idea's or partial songs to Mr. Tom T. or Miss Dixie for their thoughts. They made their contributions to a very
good and timely song. We are so honored to be the first to record this significant song.

6. Led By A Child - As a Grandpa, the love connection between grandparent and child speaks to my heart. Glenna brought a wonderful song to me, written by her and Oren Pruitt called "Grandpa, If You're Not In Heaven". I heard the song and loved the sentiment and reflected on a conversation with one of my own that remains special to me, so I asked Glenna if I could take liberty with the song and re-write my sentiments into it. Thanks Glenna.

7 Two Dollar Ring - Another great new old traditional song in the vein of
Ralph Stanley written by my old down home Ozark buddy, Dale Haverstick.

8 Nails and Thorns - The idea for this song came from a great friend and talented picker from Missouri, Thayne Bradford; I took it and ran with it. What a price our savior paid that we might be counted worthy of a heavenly
home.

9 Lainey's Waltz - Waltz’s were a big part of early bluegrass and it seems
not many folks write new ones to contribute to the music. This is a beautiful
one written by Ferrell and dedicated to his loving wife, Elaine.

10 Who's Gonna Pray - Intercessory prayer is the most effective weapon we
as Christians have. I thank God for my praying Mom, who I'm sure, is still interceding for me from her home in heaven. Love you Mom.

11 With Love From Normandy - Another great song I felt compelled to record, from the pen of a great writer and contributor of new material,
Brink Brinkman.

12 Broke Hearts Are Real - A good driving song written by our fine young bass player, Earon Adams. I was honored when he brought it to me for ideas
and lyrics. Betcha` this is the first of many to follow from Earon.

13 Just Wanna Write A Bluegrass Song - This is definitely outside the bluegrass box. I find this song hilarious. Written by good buddy and band mate Ferrell Stowe. Ferrell has simply processed the thoughts of many would-be song writers through his dry sense of humor.



Cedar Hill led by National Old Time Country and Bluegrass Music Hall Of Fame Member, Frank Ray, has perhaps never sounded more at ease bringing you the Original, Emotive, Hard Driving style of Ozark Bluegrass Music they are known for, with the group of great musicians and singers that have come together. It is apparent that with Jimmy Bunch and Ferrell Stowe, who have a long list of awards and accolades and long time Cedar Hill members in the early day's, the music comes easy and the fun and smiles from the band members and audiences tell the story. As one writer put it, "Cedar Hill is The Real Deal when it comes to true Bluegrass music, but instead of the appalachians, their music is spawned out of the Ozark Mountains of Missouri and Arkansas".


Be sure to join them and hear their high lonesome and hard driving Bluegrass music as they continue to bring you some of the finest original, emotive, Traditional Ozark Bluegrass music that has become synonymous with the name Cedar Hill. In the words of a recent film, you have to put sharing an evening or week end with them on your "Bucket List"
