Grammy-nominated bluegrass powerhouses The Grascals will be back with their brand new album Up All Night on August 27. Though the collection is new, the sextet's followers will find familiar touchstones in four previously-released hit singles that bookend the set: the nostalgic recollection of "Sleepy Little Town," sentimental favorites "Flowers And Lace" and "Thankful,"and the bluegrass gospel classic, "Traveling The Highway Home."
As a preview for this new record, the Grascals have partnered with us to premiere their brand new song "Remember Where You're Going" (click HERE to listen). The band has this to say about the song, "Our good pal and label-mate Darren Nicholson (Balsam Range) sent 'Remember Where You're Going' to us and we knew as soon as we heard it that we had to record it. We absolutely love the melody and the message of the song!
When we got together and heard how perfectly it fit John's voice and how well the trio worked on the harmonies...it was just a no-brainer that it had to be a Grascals song and included on our new album Up All Night. Thanks to Darren and Charles Humphrey III for a great song and we hope everybody loves it as much as we do."
On Up All Night, that musical one-two punch delivers a group of songs supplied by some of the music's most successful writers, including Milan Miller ("Maybelle"), Rick Lang ("Thankful" and "Low Down Blues"), Ray Edwards ("Where My Darlin' Waits For Me," "This Ol' Train") and Jon Weisberger ("Up All Night" and "You Put Me First," the latter co-written with Blue Highway's Shawn Lane). There's even room for a signature instrumental, Roberts' "It's A String Thing," that gives the pickers a turn out front - one that, not surprisingly, they take full advantage of.
As they leave the 15th anniversary of their founding behind and look toward the 20th, The Grascals can truthfully say they have the best of both worlds - the steadiness of a veteran group that knows who they are and where they're going, and the excitement and energy of an ensemble that knows it has something to prove, and the confidence to know they'll more than meet the challenge. With Up All Night, they're serving notice that they're ready to go.
