Country Boy: A Bluegrass Tribute to John Denver

Catalogue No.: COM4627
Record Label: Compass Records
Format: CD

Grammy-nominated Special Consensus joins forces with bluegrass music's brightest stars on the first purely bluegrass tribute to the iconic singer/songwriter who died in 1997. Country Boy showcases Special Consensus at the musical center of each track with a guest cast of Grammy-winning and International Bluegrass Music Association-winning vocalists and instrumentalists. Produced by Alison Brown, the album features a solid 10 song set of Denver hits and lesser known songs. Stand out tracks include 'Country Roads' (with John Cowan sharing lead vocal duties), 'Back Home Again' (with Dale Ann Bradley on a vocal duet), 'Wild Montana Skies' (with reigning Female Vocalist of the Year Claire Lynch) and 'Thank God I'm a Country Boy' done as an instrumental featuring twin fiddles (Michael Cleveland and Buddy Spicher) AND twin banjos (Greg Cahill and Alison Brown). Peter Rowan's distinctive step-out vocal on 'Rocky Mountain High' is sure to become a must have for bluegrass fans as is Jim Lauderdale's countrified rendition of'Poems, Prayers and Promises.' Other guests on the project include Rhonda Vincent, Rob Ickes and Jason Carter.
