"Watching 'That's Kentucky' climb to #1 on the national bluegrass charts has been an exciting time for our band," says Lorraine Jordan. "This song represents traditional bluegrass in many ways, and we are proud to have been given the opportunity to record such a great song. I would like to thank the songwriters, djs, and especially the fans. Let's all be proud together that a simple song recorded by a simple band is what we all still want to hear."
The band took a fresh approach in the studio while recording this traditional song. In doing so, the band has left fans and critics alike raving! Bluegrass Today calls this, "the most memorable song from Dixie and Tom T. Hall to come down the pike in many a year."
The band's distinct sound and old time flair can be attributed to the bluegrass-rich area of North Carolina from which they hail and borrow their name. The band has earned a reputation as one of the hardest working bands in bluegrass. Carolina Road's performance is a traditional sound with a fresh approach, which includes invigorating instrumentals, smooth blending vocals, and all the energy that you can stand. The future has a lot in store for Lorraine Jordan & Carolina Road, with many surprises to come!
The International Bluegrass Music Association's annual awards will take place in Lorraine's hometown of Raleigh, North Carolina from September 30 to October 4.
