International Bluegrass Music Association Entertainer of the Year Award winners Balsam Range is set to release another album of tight interlocking rhythms and instant bluegrass classics. This premiere track, “Graveyard Blues,” spins a lyrical lament over the catchiest, most exciting acoustic instrumentation. It’s a story of a frustrating challenge of trying to keep a farm going against almost insurmountable odds.
“‘Graveyard Blues’ is an awesome song from my pheasant hunting pal Barry Bales. This tune is the definition of sad. A couple trying to make ends meet, raise a family, and keep their farm going just can’t seem to keep it together. Coupled with an aggressive beat, it is one of my favorites from Aeonic.” — Caleb Smith
