THE BACK FORTY features the new single “That Janie Baker" and comes on the heels of Marty’s two previous releases on Rural Rhythm including SOUTHERN ROOTS & BRANCHES, which contains the bluegrass hit single, “Dirt Road Heartache”.  Raybon's country gospel album, HAND TO THE PLOW (Rural Rhythm Christian), had two chart topping songs, “I’ve Seen What He Can Do” and “I’m Working on A Building”, featuring vocals by Jimmy Fortune, T.
