This Old Guitar and Me

by Grasstowne

Grasstowne was formed in 2007 and has become a staple among notable bluegrass bands at festivals around the country. Founding member Alan Bibey has made a name for himself as one of the most creative and technically gifted mandolin players in bluegrass and acoustic music. A stylist who turned heads while spending his formative years in other bands, his tasteful innovations and pristine execution earned him inclusion in The Young Mando Monsters project, Mel Bay’s Mandolin book The Greatest Mandolin Players Of The Twentieth Century as well as The Bluegrass All-Stars Sugar Hill Records project. SPBGMA's 3-Time Mandolin Performer of the Year has also been nominated for a Grammy® and in 2004, the Gibson Company put into production the Alan Bibey Signature Series line of mandolins, reaffirming his status as one of the most influential mandolin players in bluegrass and acoustic music history. Bibey is joined by four of the finest crop of young musicians in the business today—Dustin Pyrtle on

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"This Old Guitar And Me", written by David Carroll, laments of subject matter that is undeniably identifiable to every musician who's ever spent any time on the road—their love affair with a guitar. Sung by Ronnie Bowman with such an emotion that one would think he was singing about a relationship with his wife, the song is without a doubt going to strike a proverbial chord with fellow music makers and music lovers alike. "Alan, along with all the guys in Grasstowne and myself fell in love with this song," stated Bowman. "It's a great song and we all had a big time recording it. These guys are outstanding and I think the feeling in the studio comes through on this recording," Alan Bibey explains how the band came to bring Bowman into the mix: "Ronnie and I met when I was 16 and we've been the best of friends ever since. I knew he was a great talent the first time I ever heard him sing and we played in a couple of groups together before he took a job with the Lonesome River Band and I helped start IIIrd Tyme Out. Since then, I've had the pleasure of writing some with Ronnie and we've written 3 songs for this new Grasstowne album."
