Gracey Holler Music to release album featuring Lyon County songs
Gracey Holler Music has released the first single from the label’s upcoming album, Songs from Lyon County with an emotional rendering of “When I Leave Kentucky.” Featuring guest vocalists IBMA award-winner Bradley Walker and rising star Holly Pitney, the single is available for purchase on CD Baby. The single was produced by Dennis Duff and Cody Kilby (who also plays guitar and mandolin), and features Andy Leftwich on fiddle, plus Alan Bartram on bass.
The song “When I Leave Kentucky” is a beautiful reflection on the scenery of the place that he never wants to leave until the day he passes. The simplicity of the vocals by Bradley Walker is complimented with grace with Holly Pitney. Overall, this is a song that any Kentuckian can relate to and reflect on their own lives.
These mountain’s, these forest and fields these rivers that roam
Forged by the hand of God this land that I call home
I know I walk these hills only by God’s grace
I’d have to leave this world to find a better place
(CH) When I leave Kentucky
They’ll lay me in the ground
When I leave Kentucky
You’ll know I’m heaven bound (D.K. Duff)
Songs from Lyon County is set to be released on September 7, 2018. Fans can check out www.graceyhollermusic.com to hear the song, as well as to keep updated on the project.
