Chris Jones & The Night Drivers' "Your Remarkable Return" has reached #1 on Bluegrass Today's weekly chart. The song marks the band's fourth #1 from its most recent album, The Choosing Road.
"I never expected four #1 songs from this album," says Jones. "It's a record for us, and I'm thankful beyond words to the folks at radio and for the fans who have been so supportive of this song since we recorded it and started performing it live."
"Your Remarkable Return" is an up-beat song that shows the band heading in a fresh, progressive direction and tells of returning from a dark past to move toward a brighter future.
"This one just felt good to us in the studio. Banjo kickoff, uptempo, key of B, so it's plenty grassy, but it's one of those rare positive bluegrass love songs," says Jones. "Jon Weisberger and I co-wrote it, and it's about an unexpected romantic reunion."
The Choosing Road, released by Mountain Home Music Company, includes three other #1 songs including "Bend In The Road," "Who You Want Me To Be" and "Looking For The Bridge." With some of the group's most intimate songwriting to date, The Choosing Road shows how Chris Jones & The Night Drivers balance the traditional tenets of bluegrass and the art of individual expression.
Robert C. Buckingham of Bluegrass Unlimited writes, "The riches encased in this project are gold. Pay mind to what you're hearing and you'll be richer for the experience. It's worth your investment to spend some quality time with this fine project."
