Chris Burton has done it again! An amazing ORIGINAL music journey from Bluegrass to Country to Gospel to Acoustic Rock. Why write one kind of music?? The songs are thoughtful, the music stellar, the harmonies tight. Chris sings lead on the kick-off Bluegrass burner, Kentucky 31. Check out the fiddle break by Ron Stewart and Mandolin break by Adam Steffey. Wow. What follows is some three-part-all-the-way-through Bluegrass, which no one does much anymore, lead by Lonesome River Band founder and lead singer Jerry Mcmillan. Next up is an A Capella Gospel number, crushed by the EXIT 109 quartet. The Acoustic Rock Early Morning is next, with some big build, and some big strings. Jerry sings another Bluegrass song, Textbook Definition of the Blues after that. Track 6 is a Country Ballad, sung by the incredible, inspirational, talented Missy Armstrong, the lead singer of the Bluegrass band Detour. Amazing!! Then Chris sings Mountains & Moonshine, a fun mix of white lightning and fiddle songs, with the stellar cast of musicians making it happen. Wandering Again is a Grassy, poignant ballad sung by Chris, and that's followed by the thoughtful instrumental, Huntingwood. Allison Burton absolutely crushes the world's next best Wedding song, which she happened to co-write with Chris. Bluegrass powerhouse and superstar Junior Sisk hits the next one, an instant Bluegrass Christmas classic, followed by a Dylanesque Rock & Roll song sung by Chris to close things out. Read the guest list below, and you will understand what we are dealing with here.
FEATURING: Adam Steffey, Ron Stewart, Aaron Ramsey, Jason Moore, Chris on Guitar, Bass, and Banjo, and some AMAZING vocals from Detour's Missy Armstrong, Bluegrass powerhouse Junior Sisk, Lonesome River Band founder Jerry Mcmillan, Ashley Primm, and Allison Burton. Neil Nicholas plays on the rock & roll and Kyle Hopkins absolutely kills the drums.
