Darrell Webb, Dream Big

“Dream Big” is out. This album highlights Darrell Webb’s 20 years of being at the forefront of Bluegrass Music with an all start cast including Rhonda Vincent, members of Blue Highway, members of The Grascals, Sammy Shelor, Ronnie Bowman, Tim Stafford, Jason Burleson, Shawn Lane, Rob Ickes, Jason Moore, Aaron Ramsey, Jamie Johnson, Darrin Vincent, Jamie Dailey, Jim VanCleve, Terry Eldredge, Phil Leadbetter, Chris Wade, Jeremy Arrowood, Brandon Green, Jake Joines, and Jared Hensley.

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. www.mountainfever.com

 

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

Enjoy!
