EDDY RAVEN with CAROLINA ROAD, “All Grassed Up,” Pinecastle. 12 tracks

Edward Futch, better known to country music fans as Eddy Raven, cut his first record in 1962.

He went on to rack up more than 35 hits on the country charts between 1974 and 1990.

Now, at 72, Raven is trying his hand at bluegrass with “All Grassed Up,” an album with Lorraine Jordan & Carolina Road.

The songs are, for the most part, classic Eddy Raven country with a bluegrass beat.

There’s “Thank God For Kids,” the song he wrote for the Oak Ridge Boys.

And there are the Raven hits of yesteryear — “Bayou Boys,” “I Should Have Called,” “I Got Mexico,” “Who Do You Know In California,” “Operator Operator,” “Island” and “Sooner or Later.”

There’s also a Raven song, “Good Morning Country Rain,” that’s been recorded by several bluegrass artists.

There’s a bluegrass chestnut, “Rollin’ In My Sweet Baby’s Arms.”

The title cut is a new song written by Raven and David Stewart.

Stewart also wrote the song, “Too Wet To Plow.”

Jordan and Carolina Road give the album the bluegrass licks it needs.

If you’re an Eddy Raven fan, you’ll want this album.
