Jim and Lynna Woolsey have been making music together for nearly four decades, dating back to their time in the 1970s with the Indiana-based Patoka Valley Boys.
But they’re really singer-songwriters, who just happen to work in bluegrass.
In the summer of 2014, they released their first album of original songs, “The Road That Brings You Home.”
Now, they’re back with “Heart and Soul, Blood and Bone,” which features 11 self-penned songs.
The title track is about the Great Depression, the Dust Bowl and those who waited 10 long years for life to get better.
“Faith could move mountains,” it says, “but couldn’t make it rain.”
“Time,” the first single, which features Jim Lauderdale‘s vocals, is about people chasing fame, racing the clock to try to achieve it.
“Just Like Me” is about people filled with rage because of things that are wrong in their lives.
“Notes From Home” tells the story of an old man who left home years ago and comes home to find a suitcase full of letters his family wrote him years ago, but didn’t how where to send them.
“Pike County Blues” is a humorous look at rural America though the eyes of a man who gave his heart of Jesus but sleeps with a gun.
“Freedom is a tribute to veterans.
And “Lights of Home” is for the people who have to travel to make a living.
