Darin and Brooke bring tradition to today and today to tradition,” says Jim Lauderdale. “You just have to hear it to know what I mean.

Darin and Brooke have an unmistakable heart connection that is one of a kind.”
Flying combines tradition and innovation, bringing together the best of both worlds with undeniably strong musicianship and vocals alongside edgy melodies and song selection meant for a new and wider audience.
Reaching out past their roots for a new sound that builds on their Bluegrass foundation, Darin and Brooke Aldridge take Flying to new heights with songs like their brilliant cover of Nancy Griffith’s “Outbound Plane,” acoustic-rock selections like the lead off track “Just a Little,” and several original songs from fellow bandmate and much-recorded writer Becky Buller, including the edgy “Laurie Stevens.”
Americana icon Jim Lauderdale offers in the liner notes, “I can’t really do justice in trying to describe the essence of this record in words; you just have to hear it to know what I mean. Listening to the lush harmonies of two people that incorporate their love and faith into their music is something very special and rare.”
