Just read about this song as part of a cd by Ronnie Bowman on John Lawless' Bluegrass Today that stayed below my radar since it came out this past November. The song title is in the title of this post and has a fantastic banjo break about 2:30 in by Rob McCoury that sent me straight to Ronnie’s recording company website to order the his self-titled cd. Enjoy:

OBTW, Chris Stapleton harmonizes, Aubrey Haney on Mandolin, Stuart Duncan on Fiddle, Wyatt Rice and Shawn Camp on Guiitar, and Dennis Crouch on Base.

Great tune. The first time I heard this was by LiveWire. Scott Vestal was on the banjo.

Completely different feel and sound. I also saw a YouTube by Charlie Waller of the same tube. Thank you for posting that Ronnie's version!!

You’re very welcome! John Lawless’ post to Bluegrass Today credits Bobby Osborne and Pete Goble for writing it and, not surprisingly, it has been recorded by the Osborne Brothers and the Country Gentlemen as well.

I am a total freak for the music of the Del McCoury Band but especially Robbie’s banjo pickin’ and I know I’m not alone!  

And you're right - Vestal picks the heck out of this song with Livewire, too!  Forgot I had that.

Cheers,
Quagmire
