"Big Virginia Sky" leaves fans calling for more "Rye Whiskey"

FROM ALTDAILY.COM - Jim Roberts says, "Guest appearances aside, Shelor and Slay are truly the stars on the record, trading brilliant solos on almost every song, including two excellent instrumentals. Shelor’s banjo work on “Bullfrog” in particular is reminiscent of old-school Béla Fleck.

The band is at its best on the bonus track: a cover of “Rye Whiskey.” It starts and ends with band singing a capella harmony: “If I don’t drink rye whiskey, I surely will die.” The three minutes in between are just classic, fun, dynamic, foot-stompin’ bluegrass. It’s worth noting that this is the only song on the record that was recorded live."
