PressNew Release_New Band Members for Josh Grigsby and County Line
Josh Grigsby and County Line, based out of the Northern Neck of Virginia, has just released their second CD, 'Ruby Lane Memories'. The title cut was written by Crystal Grigsby and is about Josh's childhood home in King George Virginia. Two other originals are featured on the CD; one written by Josh Grigsby titled 'It Happened to Me' which is a gospel song he wrote as his own testimony. The other original was penned by Judge Parker many years ago, and he brought it to the band and they fell in love with it and grassed it up a bit. The Title is 'These Places'. Also featured on the CD is a song written by renowned tunesmith, David Norris, who has penned songs for some of bluegrasses' best. 'Our Old Home' is sure to become a fan favorite. The band is excited to release this CD and hopes the fans will enjoy listening to it as much as they enjoyed recording it.
The CD is available on CDBaby, by contacting the band via email (email@example.com) or by sending a message via Facebook. It can also be purchased at The Art of Coffee in the quaint village of Montross, Virginia, owned by Terry Cosgrove who provided the photography for the CD. The CD is also available for DJ download on Airplay Direct.
Another bit of news for the band is the addition of two new members, Mark Mills and Whitney Perkins. Neither are strangers to the bluegrass scene.
Mark Mills from Chesterfield, Virginia, provides lead guitar and vocals for JGCL. Mark started playing guitar at the age of 12 and went through country music and rock and roll before discovering Bluegrass in his late teens. He learned to play mandolin and joined JC Hale and the Blu Fescue, became a founding member of the New Spring Grass, then later played with Copper Ridge. He was with Copper Ridge for over 15 years. Mark is looking forward to making great music with Josh Grigsby and County Line and they are very happy to have him and his talents on board.
Whitney Perkins from Chesterfield, Virginia provides Dobro for JGCL. Whitney has been playing Dobro since 2010 and studied under Reso-master Pete Smith.
In 2011 she received the VFMA youth scholarship award. From 2012-2013 Whitney attended East Tennessee State University's bluegrass program.
Whitney says that the biggest influence on her style of playing is Josh Graves and Pete Smith.
Josh Grigsby and County Line looks forward to having Whitney's smiling face on stage with them.
