Top 20 New Bluegrass Songs: Report from WNHU Black Diamond Show 7/22/12

Top Newer Bluegrass Songs for the period ending 7/22/12

Reported to Bluegrass Unlimited (top 12) and Bluegrass Music Profiles (top 20)

I love summer--so many great new CDs come out as artists go on the festival circuit. In particular, two new CDs caught my attention this month: Rhonda Vincent's Sunday Mornin' Singin' and Bob Amos's Borrowed Time. Because when I heard Bob Amos's "Where the Wild River Rolls" I immediately bought the entire CD on line, that song gets my vote as number one this month. Rhonda Vincent's "Blue Sky Cathedral" is a great Gospel song that I've been telling people about all month. Two great songs: getting my vote for number one and number two.
