Lorraine Jordan and Carolina Road’s distinct sound and old-time flair can be attributed to the bluegrass-rich area of North Carolina from which they hail and borrow their name. Band-leader Lorraine Jordan’s showmanship and chemistry with the audience make the group a perennial favorite among bluegrass fans at festivals and concerts across the country. Lorraine has fronted Carolina Road for over a decade and has seven national recordings to her credit. The band has earned a reputation as one of the hardest working bands in bluegrass, averaging 60 bluegrass festivals in the U.S. and Canada annually along with headlining the Bluegrass Cruise and hosting the Canadian Bluegrass Awards. Carolina Road’s performance is a hard driving traditional sound with invigorating instrumentals, smooth blending vocals, and all the energy that you can stand.
It’s been over three years since Lorraine Jordan & Carolina Road released their last album, and the wait is over as the award-winning band drops their brand new project, True Grass Again. Released via Pinecastle Records, the collection features 11 new recordings, all done with traditional bluegrass flair.
“I am extremely proud of the True Grass Again project,” said Lorraine Jordan. “It represents everything that I stand for in Blue Grass. I could not have asked for any better vocalists or musicians to have joined me on the title cut. It’s more than just a song, it’s a movement. Get on board and let’s keep the Blue Grass alive.”
The band’s last release, Country Grass had the bluegrass chart-toppers teaming up with some of the biggest country artists of all-time, including Crystal Gayle, Lee Greenwood, Jim Ed Brown, Lynn Anderson, The Kentucky Headhunters, T.G. Sheppard, Eddy Raven, and John Conlee, to give country classics a new, unique, bluegrass twist. In addition, joining the impressive line-up was country singers Kelly Lang and Jesse Keith Whitley, along with bluegrass favorites Marty Raybon and Ronnie Reno.
