BILLY DROZE 'To Whom It May Concern' RUR-1138-CD

  • $13.50


BILLY DROZE, whose new Rural Rhythm album, TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN, has been burning up our Bluegrass Today Weekly Airplay Chart much of this summer. Three tracks charted in advance of the  CD release, his driving version of Columbus Stockade Blues, the slinky, bluesy Kentucky Blue, and now It Gets Better With Time, our current #1 song, written with James Ervan Parker and Ronnie Bowman. All feature Billy’s unique, mildly quirky, but instantly recognizable voice, with a touch of Keith Whitley, a taste of his co-producer Bowman, and a distinctive twang all his own.

Tracks go back and forth between deeply traditional bluegrass on new songs like Chill In The Room (co-written with Gary Waldrep and featuring Marty Raybon on harmony vocals), Go Back There Again (with Chris Meyers), and Haunted By The Wind (Myers again and Guy Nix), and others with an intriguing, acoustic country sound heavily influenced by the grass in Billy’s heart. My Father’s Son gets an understated treatment that well suits this statement of a son’s recognition of what he has received from his parents, co-written by Droze and Mike Manuel, and Rain Won’t Quit, an extra lonesome number with harmony vocals from Ronnie Bowman.
