Jim Lauderdale and Grateful Dead lyricist Robert Hunter have been longstanding, songwriting compadres, each award-winning writer acclaimed across multiple genres. Carolina Moonrise: Bluegrass Songs By Robert Hunter And Jim Lauderdale is their fourth collaboration and a logical follow-up to the 2011 Grammy-nominated Rhyme And Reason. Sonically the album offers a fresh, contemporary take on traditional bluegrass.
Produced by Dobro ace Randy Kohrs, this collection of 12 originals showcases Lauderdale's distinctive vocals on tight bluegrass arrangements featuring a Nashville all-star band, including Tim Crouch on fiddle, Josh Williams on guitar, Aaron Ramsey on mandolin, Scott Vestal on banjo and Jay Weaver on bass.
