Danny Paisley & the Southern Grass Weary River Patuxent Music Done right, bluegrass sounds simple. We know it isn’t, of course; anyone who has watched a talented group working up a new song is aware of the incredible complexities that go into making a pure and natural bluegrass song. Some people are convinced that bluegrass… Continue reading Danny Paisley & The Southern Grass- Weary River review
