Danny Paisley and The Southern Grass continue to be deeply rooted in tradition, but
look to the future with enthusiasm and anticipation . This coming year brings renewed excitement!
Danny Paisley and The  Southern Grass released their That’s Why I’m Lonesome CD on Patuxent Music. It is filled with all the traditional sound you would expect from a Southern Grass CD.

Since Danny’s father Bob Paisley (founder of Southern Grass) passed away in 2004, Danny
Paisley and The Southern Grass have made their own niche in the bluegrass world.

With Danny Paisley, IBMA’s 2016 male vocalist of the year on guitar, Southern Grass continues the family tradition adding Danny’s son Ryan on mandolin, the next generation of up and coming pickers. Southern Grass welcomes back TJ Lundy (after a brief hiatus) as the band’s fiddler. TJ Lundy is a highly respected fiddler bridging the gap between old time fiddling and bluegrass music.TJ is a warehouse of fiddle tunes! Southern Grass also includes:

Mark Delaney (formerly with Randy Waller and the Country Gentlemen, and Darren Beachley &
Legends of the Potomac) on banjo; and Bobby Lundy on bass.

On their current album ‘That’s Why I’m Lonesome,” Danny and the band are joined by guest vocalists Rhonda Vincent and Dudley Connell, each perfectly complementing Danny’s voice on a song.

Danny Paisley and the Southern Grass play powerful, unadorned, and intense traditional bluegrass. Their combination of instrumentation and vocals convey the energy and emotion of classic bluegrass and
country music. Danny’s lead vocals will captivate your senses, so much so that many prominent
musicians, including Alison Krauss, have considered Danny as one of their favorite singers. His voice combines powerful range and soulful blues with a sound like no one else in bluegrass today.

Danny grew up listening to the music his father Bob played and enjoyed hearing— the sounds of classic bluegrass like Red Allen, Mac Martin, Bill Monroe, the Stanleys, Reno and Smiley, and the Osbornes,
as well as old time mountain music and traditional country music. Once you hear Danny sing, it comes as no surprise that he lists George Jone s and Vern Gosdin as major influences in his singing.

Danny Paisley, born in Landenberg, PA in 1959, inherited the love and talent of this music and is proud
to continue the family tradition. Gathering fans at each event, Danny Paisley and The Southern Grass,
look forward with renewed energy as they bring their unique sound to audiences near and far.
