see what folks are saying about her incredible voice …………

The Distance is a great way to end a strong album that
definitely positions Carrie Hassler as one of the best female vocalists in all of the roots music genres.”
“As always, Hassler’s powerful voice
is front and center, and she is assisted by some real heavyweights in
the studio. Ron Stewart is on banjo, Alan Bibey on mandolin, Tim
Stafford on guitar, Justin Moses on fiddle and Mark Fain on bass.”
“Wow! Luxury Liner is a fantastic performance by Carrie Hassler. It’s great to receive new music by Carrie and hear her beautiful voice on such fresh and engaging material.”
Kyle Cantrell – SiriusXM Radio

This Bluegrass singer rounded up some of the best musicians to play on this eight song album.  Hassler also has an amazingly angelic voice
that makes you want to listen to more and more! The standout song on
this album is Get Me Over You, which was written by Jennifer Strickland,
Craig Market and Jenny Lynn. Great musicianship, great songs and a great voice make this album one to hear.”

“Alison Krauss fans might want to check this one out: an
introspective/romantic set of countrified bluegrass, with understated
picking and heartfelt vocals.”
DJ Joe Sixpack, Slipcue Guide To Country Music

“Maybe the gem of the collection is the stunning Catch My Breath, which sounds like something that could be straight from the pages of Connie Smith a la 1967. Hassler
has been paying her dues and growing as an artist for a long time now,
and with The Distance, I think it’s obvious she’s ready for that next


“Carrie Hassler’s Luxury Liner carried me away. Super tempo, superb vocals, and top of the line pickin’ plus a nod to Emmylou’s version. 
Gram would’ve loved it.”
Barry Tashian (The Original Flying Burrito Bros., Emmylou Harris’ Hot Band, Barry & The Remains, Holly & Barry Tashian)
