Lonesome River Band keeps with bluegrass genre tradition with their new single, "Your Memory Wins Again." With Jesse Smathers singing lead, this uptempo song shows the band's instrumental prowess and how they can carry themes with clever lyrics and heartfelt vocal delivery.
"'Your Memory Wins Again' is a song I first heard in the 80s by Skip Ewing. Skip was one of my favorite guitar players and singers in the 1980s and had several hit songs over the years," says Sammy Shelor, LRB's award-winning banjo player. "This was just one of the uptempo things that has always stuck with me from hearing it years ago, and I always thought it would make a great bluegrass song. We finally had the opportunity to do it on this album."
"Your Memory Wins Again" is the fourth single from LRB's most recent album,Outside Looking In, released earlier this spring from Mountain Home Music Company.
