proud to announce the new self-titled album by Ralph Stanley II & The Clinch Mountain Boys made its debut

Brown

and their dads helped build it. The stage, just like the band
members and legacy of the Clinch Mountain Boys, have stood throughout the
years. The photo and album artwork was provided by Anthony Ladd of
Kneelindesign.

albums including a Grammy Award on Lost
in the Lonesome Pines
along with his father, Dr. Ralph Stanley for their
collaboration with Jim Lauderdale. Ralph II has also proven to be an
accomplished songwriter and has six solo albums, along with the
highly-acclaimed duet album with his father titled Side by Side.
