showcases Cardwell’s powerful four-octave voice, which has turned heads
since getting his start performing regionally with The Cardwell Family
in the Show-Me State. The fast paced song was heavily inspired by the
singer’s humble upbringing, which included stops at venues and Bluegrass
festivals throughout the 70s and 80s, along with performing as a member
of New Tradition in the 90s. “Alright” was written by Cardwell and
features a feel-good message about love and its journey.

his start as a songwriter, the prolific musician has collaborated with
some of the biggest artists across multiple genres, spanning from
Bluegrass to Folk to Americana and beyond. That musicianship is on full
display on
Stand On My Own, with the Missouri native
penning nine of the tracks. As indicated on the project’s lead single,
“Time To Drive,” Cardwell’s music has staying power, with the song
spending an impressive 37 consecutive weeks on the Bluegrass Today
Grassicana Chart, where it hit No. 1 on seven different occasions.

album highlights include the song “Hurricane Rain,” which was
co-written by award-winning radio personality Terry Herd, and features
thought-provoking lyrics. Another key moment is the waltz-inspired track
“Movin’ On” which was co-written with Danny Roberts of The Grascals.
Throughout the project, listeners will hear a combination of upbeat
songs, along with heartfelt ballads. Along with his touring band,
Tennessee Moon, is a list of who’s who musicians, stepping in to play on
part of the album is New Grass Revival alumni Curtis Burch and Pat
