In 2010, Doyle Lawson, Paul Williams and J.D. Crowe got together to pay tribute to their old boss, Jimmy Martin, with an album of gospel songs from Martin’s repertorie.
They called it, “Old Friends Get Together.”
It was so successful that they returned in 2014 with “Standing Tall and Tough.”
Since then, Crowe has retired, but Lawson and Williams have created “Chapter 3” — their third musical outing together.
It’s a collection of traditional country, bluegrass and bluegrass gospel songs.
There’s the Delmore Brothers’ “I’m Sorry I Caused You To Cry,” the Bailes Brothers‘ “I Want To Be Loved, But Only By You” and the Louvin Brothers‘ “I Feel Better Now.”
Williams wrote “Abigail,” “I’m Getting Over You” and “What Am I Gonna Do With This Broken Heart.”
From the country side, there’s Dolly Parton‘s “Til Death Do Us Part,” Justin Tubb‘s “Big Fool of the Year” and Buddy Starcher‘s “I’ll Still Write Your Name in the Sand.”
And from the gospel side, there’s “I’ll Make It Through,” “There’s Absolutely Nothing My God Can’t Do” and “I Feel Better Now.”
These days, it’s sometimes hard to decide if what you’re listening to is really bluegrass.
You won’t have any problem with this album.
