Lonesome River Band’s new single, “Little Magnolia,” is a waltz with classic style

A waltz about love lost but not forgotten, Lonesome River Band brings their new single, “Little Magnolia.” With lead vocals by mandolin player Jesse Smathers and with a power trio chorus with Smathers, Brandon Rickman and Barry Reed, this is Bluegrass at its high-lonesome best.

Written by Adam Wright and Milan Miller, it’s a new song that sounds like it was written in the golden age of brother duet-style harmonies.

“‘Little Magnolia’ is a favorite track of mine. It’s a song that sounds 80 years old,” says Smathers.
“The feel of this song comes from a place of authenticity, something
that we all strive for, and that made it so fun to record for all of

Miller adds, “‘Little Magnolia’ is a tune that Adam Wright
and I wrote on Thanksgiving Eve back in 2010.  It seemed to just waltz
into the room and twenty minutes later, we had a song that somehow felt
like it had been around for years. Back when I was young and
impressionable, the Lonesome River Band was one of the first groups to bend my ear toward bluegrass, and I am thrilled that ‘Little Magnolia’ is the newest addition to their timeless catalog.”
