Cherryville, N.C. -- Mountain Home Music recording artists, Darin and Brooke Aldridge, have announced the addition of award-winning fiddler, singer and songwriter Becky Buller to their band. “Brooke and I are very pleased to welcome Becky to our musical family,” Darin says. “She is a multi-instrumentalist and a gifted singer/songwriter. We’re looking forward to making a lot of great music together.”
Featured on the Spring 2012 cover of Fiddler magazine, Becky Buller is a seasoned bluegrass, Americana and roots music artist. Her songs have been recorded by Ricky Skaggs, Rhonda Vincent, and Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver. She co-wrote the title cut of Special Consensus’ Grammy-nominated album, Scratch Gravel Road. She is winner of the 2006 IBMA Album of the Year award for her work with the Daughters of Bluegrass, and was the 2001 winner of MerleFest’s Chris Austin Songwriting contest.
After graduating from East Tennessee State University in 2001, Becky spent ten years on the road with Valerie Smith & Liberty. She has two solo albums to date: Little Bird (Bell Buckle Records, 2004), Rest My Weary Feet (SRS 2000). She can also be heard on Pickin’ Like A Girl (Blue Circle, 2013), the latest album by the Daughters of Bluegrass.
“I’m thrilled to have the chance to pick and sing with Darin and Brooke,” said Buller. “They have a great sound and their group is fantastic. Plus they’re just downright nice folks and they travel in a Sun Drop sponsored sprinter. (My husband and I are Sun Drop fanatics from way back.) I know this is going to be a lot of fun!”
The latest album from Darin and Brooke Aldridge is Live at Red, White & Bluegrass (Mountain Home Music Company). Known as the Sweethearts of Bluegrass, the Aldridge’s were honored to be nominated as the IBMA Emerging Artist of the Year in 2012.
Buller replaces fiddler/singer Rachel Johnson Boyd who toured with the Aldridge’s for the past 3 years.
