Darrell_MB_casualHe’s been busy over his 20 years, with Grammy Award Nominations, IBMA awards, Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music of America honors and doing a multitude of projects with Dolly Parton, Marty Raybon, Bobby Hicks and the queen herself, Rhonda Vincent. I first met Darrell while a new member of the Lonesome River Band. He was just a teenager, but he didn’t miss a beat and had integrated himself into the classic Lonesome River Band sound at the get-go. Recommended cuts on ‘Dream Big”, include “More Life”, a touching song about growing old. “Hummingbird” also got my attention, primarily because of the killer opening and the drive. It’s all good. “Dream Big” out now and predictably on the national bluegrass charts very soon.


We could not find anything approved yet for release off the new album but there’s plenty of Darrell’s work out there.
