Deeply rooted in tradition, Danny Paisley & The Southern Grass’ new album, The Room Over Mine, earned accolades and significant chart action. The song, “Don’t Throw Mama’s Flowers Away” won the 2009 IBMA Award for Song of the Year and the group has garnered several IBMA nominations for Emerging Artist of The Year, Male Vocalist of the Year, Album of the Year. Touring nationally and internationally, the band’s list of notable festivals and events include Rocky Grass, Grey Fox, Grass Valley, Del Fest, Wind Gap, Delaware Valley Bluegrass Festival and more.
With a smokey and seductive alton, seven-time IBMA Bass Player of the Year, Missy Raines, heads up this quartet featuring mandolin, guitars, bass, and drums. The territory The New Hip covers is broad and the compass is set by Raines, planted right in the center of the stage directing her bass every bit as much as she’s playing it. ICON Magazine said Raines is “a seductive amalgam of folk, country, bluegrass, and rock, recalling the earliest platters by Lucinda Williams and Roseanne Cash.”
