Doctor's OrdersCharlottesville, VA -- Don Rigsby’s life-long passion for the music of Dr. Ralph Stanley comes to full boil in his forthcoming album from Rebel Records, Doctor’s Orders: A Tribute to Ralph Stanley. (Stanley has been referred to as Dr. Ralph Stanley since receiving his honorary doctorate in music from Lincoln Memorial University in 1976.) For his third Rebel release, Rigsby chose to pay homage to Stanley with Doctor’s Orders, so named because Stanley helped choose the track listing from Rigsby’s master list of five dozen Ralph Stanley and Stanley Brothers recordings. “I wanted people to see my roots for what they are,” says Rigsby about his decision to make a tribute album. “I want the world to know that Ralph’s music is what makes me tick.”
