New Twist on Old Train Standard - New Single for Tim Stafford!

PRESCRIPTION BLUEGRASS IMAGE  -  COVER ARTBlue Highway co-founder Tim Stafford is set to release a new solo record, JUST TO HEAR THE WHISTLE BLOW, on Tuesday, July 15th from Hedge Drive Records.

The guitar-driven title track, the album’s first single, is a new twist on the classic train song, it tells the tale of someone who wished he had hopped a freight car and is aimed to please fans of both traditional and progressive bluegrass alike.

The 14-track musical set features an all-star line-up from across the bluegrass genre. Joining Stafford are Adam Steffey, Ron Stewart, Barry Bales, and Stuart Duncan as the core band, with special appearances by John Gardner, Marty Raybon, Steve Gulley and Beth Snapp.

Having performed on a host of records and contributed original songs to numerous others, Grammy and multiple-IBMA award recipient Stafford certainly showcases his talents in this, his sophomore solo release.

Stafford's solo songwriting and arranging adds 7 pieces to the album, while his writing partners on the remaining tracks include Steve Gulley, Barry Bales, Bobby Starnes, Alan Stockard, and Jon Weisberger.

The album is set for a July 15th release but a note on Tim's website gives an incentive to pre-order.
