New Bluegrass Single Release: “This World is Not My Home” by Alan Tompkins
Nashville, TN (April 17, 2012)

Bluegrass multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, radio host and festival promoter, ALAN TOMPKINS is proud to announce the April 17, 2012 single release, “This World Is Not My Home” from his upcoming solo album NO PART OF NOTHIN’. The track features Alan on vocals with Deryl Dodd singing harmony, as well as Randy Kohrs on resophonic guitar, Ned Luberecki on banjo, Stephen Mougin on guitar, Gerald Jones on mandolin, and Mike Bub slapping the upright bass. The new single is available for digital purchase at AlanTompkins.com and free to radio at airplaydirect.com/alantompkins.

NO PART OF NOTHIN’ is set for release in June 2012. The album features a lineup of incredibly talented musicians and singers, many of whom are Grammy® or IBMA award winners or nominees. The list includes Sam Bush, Deryl Dodd, Kenny & Amanda Smith, Ron Stewart, Stephen Mougin, Gerald Jones, Greg Cahill, Ned Luberecki, Mike Bub, Randy Kohrs, Brad Davis, Nate Lee, Bobby Davis, and Steve Rhian.

“Who doesn't dream of working with bluegrass greats like Sam Bush, Stephen Mougin, Ron Stewart, Randy Kohrs, Nedski and Kenny & Amanda Smith? Very few people change dreams into reality, but I'm not surprised that Alan Tompkins did. His baritone is up to the task of fronting the Dream Team Bluegrass Band on the old gospel standard, ‘This World Is Not My Home.’ Good job, Alan,” said Katy Daley, WAMU's Bluegrass Country Radio Host.

A native of the farming and coal mining country of western Kentucky, Alan grew up steeped in the sounds of classic country, gospel, and bluegrass music. He performed in several bands in his home town of Madisonville, Kentucky before moving to Texas in 1983, where he would earn MBA and law degrees at SMU. His business career kept him busy for the next two decades, but the musical fire never burned out. After becoming friends with Texas country artist Deryl Dodd, Alan’s desire to play live music again roared to life. His love of bluegrass, the music of his home state, motivated him to learn to play banjo, upright bass, and other instruments used in traditional bluegrass.

Alan is the founder and President of the Bluegrass Heritage Foundation, a non-profit charitable organiza¬tion dedicated to the preservation and promotion of bluegrass music in America. The Foundation produced and distributed Fanning the Fire, an award-winning short documentary film that has screened in more than 20 film festivals across the United States, in 2011.
