Timeless, haunting, and powerful, Orthophonic Joy re-imagines the iconic recordings that created the "Big Bang" of country music and catapulted The Carter Family and Jimmie Rodgers to stardom.  Produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Carl Jackson, these songs are accompanied by narration from longtime Grand Ole Opry host Eddie Stubbs and their enduring beauty shines through.  Not only does this album pay homage to the original recordings, it is destined to stir a re-awakening within the industry the 1927 Bristol Sessions helped shape.

"This is an absolutely stunning body of work, crafted very carefully by Carl Jackson and all of the 'Iconic" artists that were involved.  This is a musical treasure worthy of a Grammy."  Lynda Weingartz, CEO - AirPlay Direct

"Johnny Cash once said... The Bristol Sessions were the single most important event in the history of Country Music.  I say, Johnny Cash was a wise man.  I am truly honored and have done my very best to shine a loving light on Bristol and the history Ralph Peer and 19 great artists made over that two week period of 1927.

Many thanks to the wonderful folks at AirPlay Direct for helping us turn 1927's 'Big Bang of Country Music' into hopefully an even bigger explosion in 2015!!!"
