AirPlay Direct is pleased to acknowledge and compliment our APD Artist Ambassador, Carl Jackson, and everyone who contributed to this historical work of art. For your Grammy consideration, “Orthophonic Joy: The 1927 Bristol Sessions Revisited”.

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.
