“Lay Me Down,” from The Grahams, premieres right here on Trail Mix!
Trail Mix is happy to bring you “Lay Me Down,” the brand new track from The Grahams, from their brand new record Glory Bound, which releases on Tuesday, May 19th.
Friends since childhood, Alyssa and Doug Graham arrived on the Americana music scene with 2013’s Riverman’s Daughter, an ode to the mighty Mississippi river. For this year’s Glory Bound, the duo once again turned to the history of American transportation for inspiration.
This time, however, it was the iron highways that criss cross the country that became their wellspring. The sounds and cadences of the railroads are inextricably woven within these songs, the nation’s love affair with freight trains and the railways that built a nation evident in the lyrics.
Glory Bound features guest appearances from, among others, rising star John Fullbright and members of The Turnpike Troubadours, one of the hottest bands of the moment from Texas.
In conjunction with Glory Bound, The Grahams are also releasing Rattle The Hocks, a live album and film produced by North Mississippi All-Stars drummer Cody Dickinson.
Here, on the Trail Mix blog, we are excited to offer you a first listen to “Lay Me Down.” Also featured on Trail Mix this month is “Griggstown,” another offering from the brand new record.
