Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver have enjoyed the release of their newest album, LIFE IS A STORY, as it sweeps onto the charts and continues to garner praise from tastemakers and fans alike.
The disc debuted on the BILLBOARD Bluegrass Album Chart at #6 and soared to #8 on the Roots Music Report Chart. The first single release from the project, “Life To My Days,” has raced up the charts, landing at #3 on the Roots Music Report Chart and rocketing to #9 on the Bluegrass Today Chart.
Music and ticket sales are jumping and glowing reviews continue to pour in. It’s an exciting time for the seven-time International Bluegrass Music Association Award Vocal Group of the Year winners, and Lawson is thrilled with the reception LIFE IS A STORY has received. “I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t gratifying,” admits Doyle. “We play music that we love and to know it is appreciated is truly a blessing.”
In addition to live performances, Lawson has filmed four episodes as host of Heartland TV’s hit show Bluegrass Ridge. Recent features include exclusive song premieres on Nashville.com, Roughstock and Bluegrass Today ; The Bluegrass Situation streamed the entire album for its listeners. The 12-track outing for Mountain Home Music Company also received coverage in Sports & Entertainment Nashville, ParcBench, Country Standard Time, Stacy’s Music Row Report, Bluegrass Notes, Midwest Record Review, Country Jukebox, Country Music News International, Fervor Coulee, Music Matters Magazine, The Boot, Digital Journal and Rambles.net.
