The next cd in the Cracker Barrel Old Country Store exclusive music program will feature some of the biggest names in country music joining up with one of the most beloved bands on today's bluegrass scene, The Grascals. The album is, "The Grascals & Friends - Country Classics With A Bluegrass Spin". It has 13 country songs that are well known, but you probably haven't heard them in this way. The Grascals bring their own bluegrass style to the tunes and bring the different tracks to life with eight of their friends, including Brad Paisley, Dierks Bentley, Charlie Daniels and Dolly Parton. The Grascals & Friends - Country Classics With A Bluegrass Spin will be available on January 10th, 2011, exclusively at all Cracker Barrel locations.
There is a bonus track on the album, "I Am Strong," that was written by Grascals band member Jamie Johnson and his wife Susanne Mumpower-Johnson along with Jenee Fleenor after The Grascals visited the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital®. In honor of the children and the song, Cracker Barrel is donating a percentage of the proceeds from the CD to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
