Lonesome River Band records catchy song, “Wreck Of My Heart”

The legendary and award-winning Lonesome River Band has released their second single of 2018, “Wreck Of My Heart” on Mountain Home.

With an iconic driving Bluegrass sound that has kept the band at the forefront of the genre this latest single, “Wreck Of My Heart,” shows why the Lonesome River Band continues to grow a fan base in their 35-plus years as performers and recording artists.
This bouncy, three-part harmony, “leavin'” song embodies the band’s enduring, driving-grass sound. Lead vocals from guitarist Brandon Rickman alongside the iconic banjo and baritone of multi-awarded IBMA Banjo Player of the Year, Sammy Shelor; the mandolin and tenor of gifted Jesse Smathers; the pulsing bass of Barry Reed and sharp fiddle of celebrated player Mike Hartgrove make for a perfected Grass single. It’s traditional-based with a contemporary feel. It’s a new song with a classic sound.

“It’s a great song by a great Texas songwriter Roger Brown,” says Rickman. “The cool, catchy melody — it’s something different we haven’t heard before.”
