“One of the hottest bluegrass acts in the world, Lonesome River Band.” McCreary County Record


“LRB has done what few bands have done, continuously reinvented itself through the years, staying both popular and relevant.” – Keith Lawrence, Bluegrass Notes.


“For three decades, the Lonesome River Band has been one of the top Bluegrass acts in the format. One of the reasons for that is that their sound has always continued to evolve. This collection is sterling proof of that. The songs are ones their fans are no doubt familiar with, but each of the songs have been re-cut to celebrate the band’s milestone.” – Chuck Dauphin, Music News Nashville

“Featuring four-time IBMA banjo player of the year Sammy Shelor and Brandon Rickman on guitar and lead vocals, Lonesome River Band creates modern bluegrass music that burns with passion and precision.” – Steve Stone, Auidophile


“Although routed in the tradition sound of artist including Flatt and Scruggs and Bill Monroe, LRB has always features a driving rhythm, tight vocal harmonies and arrangement, in addition to dynamic improvisations. Just listen to their treatment of Angeline the Baker, with Shelor, Jones and Hartgrove trading licks on this old time foot tapper.” Hudson Valley Bluegrass
