& harmony singing is featured on Livin, Lovin, Losin: A Tribute to
the Louvin Brothers, which won a GRAMMY for Best Country Album in 2003
and was named recorded event of the year by IBMA in 2004. He’s also
featured on two tracks of Moody Bluegrass, alongside artists such as Tim
O’Brien, Alison Krauss, John Cowan, Harley Allen et al and is recently
featured as lead vocalist again on Moody Bluegrass II.
Cordle was born and raised on a small family farm in eastern Kentucky.
While a young child he was introduced to bluegrass, country, and gospel
music, by his great grandfather Harry Bryant, an old time claw hammer
banjo stylist, fiddle player and dancer. He recounts, “mom said I could
sing “I’ll Fly Away”, all the way through when I was 2”! Cordle fondly
remembers this early influence by pointing out, “we lived so far away
from everything, that we had to make our own entertainment. Papaw would
get the fiddle out in the evenings sometimes and play and dance for us.
Just as soon as I was old enough to try to learn to play I did so &
kinda seconded after him on the guitar. He ran an old country store and I
spent many happy hours in there with him playing, talking about and
listening to music. It was our escape into another world, something we
grew up with and looked so forward to. I was always happiest when we
were in a jam session”.
