Lorraine Jordan & Carolina Road Releases Brand New Nostalgic Single “Bill Monroe’s Ol’ Mandolin”

Available for DJ Download on AirPlay Direct; Digital Download Available Upon Request

Track Serves as Lead Single from Upcoming Album Coming in 2020 

Nashville, Tenn. - Lorraine Jordan & Carolina Road are back with their brand new single, “Bill Monroe’s Ol’ Mandolin.” The song tells the story of the night in 2018 when Bill Monroe’s world-famous instrument was played by Ricky Skaggs at the Country Music Hall of Fame at his own induction ceremony. Released via Pinecastle Records, the ballad was written by long-time collaborator David Stewart. Fans can download and stream the new song HERE. 

“I am excited for this new song to be heard,” says Lorraine Jordan. "We had to find the perfect song to follow our last one. ‘True Grass’ had great success and I believe ‘Monroe's Ol’ Mandolin’ will also. I predict this song will touch the hearts of Monroe fans and traditional Bluegrass fans.” 

“As I sat late one night watching The CMHF award show, Ricky Skaggs was getting inducted and they handed him Bill Monroe's Mandolin to play,” explains David Stewart. “As I watched, he held it like the Bible, he embraced it like a friend. He spoke softly to it and it spoke to him. I began writing the song and could not put my pen down. I wrote what I saw for the first verse and chorus. The second verse I wrote was about the Mandolin getting destroyed and put back together again. That was something that Mr. Monroe shared with me in a conversation once. I am so grateful that the good Lord sent this special song down to me.” 

Lorraine Jordan & Carolina Road has generated a huge following with their one-of-a-kind ability to tell a story with their music. Band leader Lorraine is currently nominated at this weekend’s SPBGMA convention for “Female Vocalist of the Year,” an award which she has won in the past. With “Bill Monroe’s Ol’ Mandolin,” the group also welcomes their newest member Allen Dyer, who sings lead on the single. The song is sure to resonate with fans of Bluegrass music, with its mandolin driven tempo, and heartfelt message. 

The release marks the first taste of new music following the band’s previous 2018 album True Grass Again. The collection featured the four-month No. 1 hit “True Grass,” which saw the group teaming up with fellow traditional Bluegrass staples Danny Paisley and Junior Sisk. The track was also written by David Stewart. Over the years, the band has collaborated with some of the biggest names in music, including Country legends John Anderson, Crystal Gayle, Lee Greenwood, the late Lynn Anderson and many more.

    A quality run house should require a length of stay commitment from the potential resident prior to moving in (this is usually anywhere from 3 months to 1 year- the longer the stay, the higher the success rates). All facilities should be set up so that every resident MUST report to the General Manager or House Manager, and that the House Manager reports directly to the General Manager or Owner.

    The Obama health care plan is complex for sure - I have never seen a health care plan that isn't. But through a variety of programs his plan attempts to deal with a) increasing the number of American that are covered by adequate insurance (almost 50 million are not), and b) managing costs in such a manner that quality and our access to health care is not adversely affected. Republicans seek to achieve these same basic and broad [url=http://rdoutpatientrehab.com/]Drug rehab[/url] goals, but their approach is proposed as being more market driven than government driven.
