    This weekend we lost one of the great voices in bluegrass music, Mac Wiseman. This eight-song compilation is my tribute to the entertainer. I certainly don't hold this up as being representative of his entire career, as I most enjoy his tunes from the early fifties. However I have included a tune from 60s and one from his wonderful collaboration with Merle Haggard in 2015. The tunes on this tribute are 1. Crazy Blues 1954 2. Fire In My Heart 1953 3. I'd Rather Live By The Side Of The Road 1953 4. Dreaming Of A Little Cabin 1952 5....

    Video at site JESSAMINE COUNTY, KENTUCKY (WDKY) — A well-known Kentucky-based bluegrass duo is getting lots of attention for a new song. The Moron Brothers produced a video for their song “Never Take A Knee” and posted it on Facebook just over a week ago. It has already been viewed nearly four million times. Songwriter Mike Carr, one half of The Moron Brothers, said he wrote the song in response to NFL players kneeling during The National Anthem. “I watch the news” he said, “and I just felt a lot of people were hungry for something like that.

    I just got back to the Philly burbs from around Camp Lejeune and as usual turned on the only country station available. Two seconds later it was off. Well, I went online and found a great station and wanted to share it with y'all. I'm a bookmark hoarder so I thought I'd ask for your help for when I need to listen to some good stuff.

    WAMU | August 21, 2016
    WAMU’s Bluegrass Country History and Origins From 1967 through today, WAMU has been a proud supporter of bluegrass music and its culture, which has been part of the Washington region for many years. A large migration from Appalachia occurred during the 1940s, making Washington the capital of a blossoming bluegrass music scene. Bluegrass became a defining sound for many in the area and, by the 1960s, 70s, and 80s, was a hotbed for musicians such as Buzz Busby, Leon Morris, The Country Gentlemen, and later, the Seldom Scene and Johnson Mountain Boys. Bluegrass music had a limited presence on commercial...

    Ralph Stanley, a patriarch of Appalachian music who with his brother Carter helped expand and popularize the genre that became known as bluegrass, died Thursday. He was 89. Stanley died at his home in Sandy Ridge, Virginia, because of difficulties from skin cancer, publicist Kirt Webster said. Stanley was born and raised in Big Spraddle, Virginia, a land of coal mines and deep forests where he and his brother formed the Stanley Brothers and their Clinch Mountain Boys in 1946. Their father would sing them old traditional songs like "Man of Constant Sorrow," while their mother, a banjo player, taught...
