The band’s outstanding bluegrass version of the Top 40 hit “If I Were A Carpenter” certainly showcases the vocal talents and tight harmony by Shannon and Heather. The song continues to appear on Bluegrass Today’s Top 20 weekly airplay chart and over the last few weeks has also gained airplay on Country radio as well. One More Road also includes the first single release, The Lives of the Innocent that also appeared numerous times on Bluegrass Today’s Top 20 chart. This Civil War anthem, written by Shannon, features his vocal strength, range and dynamic guitar playing highlighted by Heather’s soulful tenor singing.
Band members include Shannon Slaughter (guitar, vocals), Heather Slaughter (mandolin, vocals), John Boulware (fiddle, vocals), Blake Bowen (bass, vocals) and Casey Murray (banjo, guitar, vocals). For more information on the band please visit www.countyclare.com and join them on Facebook.
