I'm new to Gresham; caught the morning blue grass show and liked something about a guy going to a wedding and knowing the bride but keeping his head down because he "kissed the bride . . ." was it "Five Years Ago?" I can't get the song to pop up on Pandora or Rhapsody. Want it for my own picking and singing. Tried your playlists, but today isn't up yet . . .

Did anyone catch the name of the Dutch bluegrass artists who will be performing this week? And where they'll be performing? Thanks.
Hickory Wind was written by Gram Parsons, one of his greatest songs. Gram & Chris Hillman were in The Byrds and The Flying Burrito Brothers. (Hillman was one of those who introduced Gram to Emmylou Harris.) Hickory Wind was on their "Sweetheart of the Rodeo" album. there is a live version of it on Gram's great "Grievous Angel" angel, released in 1974, several months after Gram's death in Sept 1973. it's been recorded numerous times and is about as beautiful as country/bluegrass/music gets. Hillman did not write the song.
btw, i can find no evidence Hillman was ever in the Eagles.
learn your Gram Parsons history & music; it will always serve you well!
Especially about politics. There are lots of John McCain supporters who love Bluegrass. Thank you.
hi. if anyone could help that would be great. They played a track at about 10.45 that i missed the name of(2nd last song before a long spoken break). it was 3 singers, 1 female, and one of the males sounded like Bill Munroe. It was very beautiful; harmonising, then each sung individually. Faith/gospel style. Thanks
How bout playin' Farther Along for us?
