Happy Easter Everybody!
We’re looking forward to a great time tomorrow night at the Colonial Theatre in Canton, NC, for the last show in our Winter Concert Series. I really hope you can come be with us. We’re going to present an all Gospel program to celebrate Easter. I’ve spent the majority of my life playing Gospel music, and I’m proud to play in a band that still respects that aspect of the bluegrass music sound. I think you’ll be blessed!
It’s shaping up to be a great night.
Our special guest is David Johnson. David is one of the few studio musicians to be elected to the Hall of Fame. During our nearly 30 years of playing sessions together, I have seen him play acoustic guitars, electric guitars, banjo, mandolin, fiddle, dobro, basses, steel guitar, cello, harmonica, and others that I can’t even remember. Tony Rice told me that David might be the best musician that he had ever seen! David is also a humle man of strong faith, very involved in his home church. He will amaze you, I guarantee it! He will be playing his own music, as well as playing with BR.
Also, our pal Eddie Rose will be there with us. Some of you have seen Eddie with us, filling in while Buddy recovers from his accident and surgery. You can attest to what an amazing singer Eddie is. He has what I call the “Shock and Awe” factor. Eddie is known around here as not only a great singer, but an incredible Bluegrass Gospel singer. He has been a great friend to this band.
Speaking of our Buddy Melton, he is going to do his best to make a short appearence tomorrow night. His recovery has been stunning to watch! The day he was released from the hospital, he was at the studio singing. We were at the studio just last night, and he was playing great fiddle on our new record! We are so thankful for you folks who have sent up thousands of prayers to make this possible.
Tickets for tomorrow night are almost gone, so jump while you can. We have so much to thank God for, and we want you to be there tomorrow night to help us celebrate all of it!
