Editors’ Notes

For more than 20 years, bluegrass fans have known Dale Ann Bradley as a singer of uncommon warmth and nuance. Her eighth album, Somewhere South of Crazy, ought to earn her still wider appreciation. Bradley’s ability to interpret mountain music remains utterly convincing; her Kentucky heritage is evident in every note she sings. Her willingness to stretch bluegrass boundaries hasn’t flagged either, as shown by the Appalachian-style treatment she gives Seals & Crofts’ “Summer Breeze.” Whatever the song’s source, Bradley displays a gift at drawing out the poignancy of a lovelorn lyric or kindling the fire within an uptempo tune. “New Shoes,” “In Despair,” and “Next to Nothing” are galloping ‘grass workouts sung with downhome vigor. Even better are the ballads, especially “Restoring the Love” (a duet with Steve Gulley) and a live take of “Old Southern Porches.” The title track—a collaboration with Pam Tills—is a smart, harmony-driven country tune. Stellar bluegrass players like Stuart Duncan, Sierra Hull, and Alison Brown (the album’s producer) lend Bradley the support she needs to make this an outstanding release. 

Customer Reviews

Absolutely Terrific!

I LOVE Dale Ann Bradley. Her voice is absolutely wonderful and I'm SO glad she came out with a new record. This is as good as bluegrass gets, and I'm very proud to share a home state with her (Kentucky). All of the guest appearances on this CD really help to make it great (Stuart Duncan, Steve Gulley, Alison Brown, and I'm sure many more), but Dale Ann sure shines on her own as well. She is an absolute treasure of bluegrass music and if you're a bluegrass fan, you definitely need to own this record.

The Best Yet!

In this latest release, Dale Ann Bradley reveals a lot about herself. Many of the songs almost seem like clips from an autobiography. She has secured her spot in the top tier of bluegrass music, and she only continues to get better. I personally love listening to this CD while driving or studying. Her music really helps you to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. This music is beautiful - get it!
