stringI can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard country music fans say something like, “I don’t really like bluegrass,” or “bluegrass is okay, but I’m not a big fan of that”.  To those people – and to the ones who just don’t listen to bluegrass, I need to say this … “Listen to The Stringdusters song “Gravity”.  Better yet, have a look at the video. 

I am a fan of country and of bluegrass.  I listen to both of them.  A lot.  I’m not sure why I never wrote about Stringdusters before.  Probably because I mostly share country music news with all of you. But, I received an e-mail recently pointing me to their newly released video. And, If you are one of those fans on the fence about bluegrass – give this one a listen.

The video was directed by Mara Whitehead, and is from their album, Laws of Gravity.  The Infamous Stringdusters have returned to their rootsy sound in Laws of Gravity. The 13-track collection celebrates a return to form for the Grammy-nominated acoustic five-piece, whose widely acclaimed 2016 album Ladies & Gentlemenfeatured all female singers (such as Joss Stone, Lee Ann Womack, Nicki Bluhm, etc). The band–hailed for their incomparably tight yet improvisation-infused live shows–are poised to build on their growing fan base and momentum.  They have won four International Bluegrass Music Association awards, earned a “Best Country Instrumental” Grammy nomination in 2011 and garnered widespread critical acclaim.
