The Old Fashioned #37


The Gibson Brothers, twice named IBMA Entertainers of the year, have taken some interesting musical sojourns on their recent albums, especially the R&B-flavored Mockingbird made with Dan Auerbach in 2018. And that’s great because Eric and Leigh have always deftly woven diverse influences into their harmonic convergence. But the release of “Dust,” the first single from a promised 2023 release, suggests a return to bluegrass form with a rolling banjo flow. It’s also a very well written song, so we’re proud to feature it this week. Also up, a new one from the Kody Norris Show, more from Frank Solivan’s Hold On album and legay tracks from Lynn Morris and the Johnson Mountain Boys. Bluegrass. What a good idea!
