LORRAINE JORDAN & CAROLINA ROAD CHART ON HOTDISC’S YEAR-END COUNTDOWN WITH LEE GREENWOOD

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (January 15, 2016)
Bluegrass fan-favorites Lorraine Jordan & Carolina Road have reason
to celebrate, as their song “Dixie Road,” with Country legend Lee
Greenwood finishes on the Hotdisc Countdown’s 30 Most Popular Songs of 2015,
securing the No. 18 spot. The international smash is a remake of the
classic Greenwood track, which recently celebrated its 30th anniversary
since topping the Country charts.  The song continues its dominance,
this time in Bluegrass form on the weekly chart, which highlights the
top Country songs across Europe. The chart is also published in Country
Music People, Country Music & Dance, and Southern Country magazines.
 
“Wow, I never imagined that Country Grass would get
this much positive reaction worldwide,” says Lorraine Jordan. “It was
such an honor getting to work with artists like Lee Greenwood, along
with all of the other Country legends featured on the project.”
 
The critically-acclaimed Country Grass has continued
to surge in popularity since being released last summer.  The latest
video from the star-studded project is “Common Man,” which features
Grand Ole Opry star John Conlee. The remake became a roaring success,
with Rolling Stone saying “the group adds pristine multi-part vocal harmonies.” The track was also spotlighted by The Boot
, who called Lorraine Jordan & Carolina Road “some
of the top musicians in country and bluegrass, and you can tell by
listening to their top-notch performance.” Coming in February is another
brand new video, featuring 21-time chart-topper T.G. Sheppard.
 
Lorraine Jordan & Carolina Road will be hitting the road
throughout 2016 with upcoming appearances across North American (see
schedule below). The band is pleased to announce their annual hosted
Christmas in the Smokies Bluegrass Festival in Pigeon Forge, Tenn. for
Dec 7-10.
