Three Wise GRASCALS Share A Smile With GAC-TV Show Host Suzanne Alexander
Fun-filled On The Streets Segment Premieres Tuesday, August 2

Nashville, TN (August 1, 2011) — The images of the “three wise monkeys” are known the world over – just like the super-hot pickin’, six-member Bluegrass band, The Grascals.  On a rare break in touring, The Grascals made a quick trip home to Tennessee, and three of the group’s members stopped by the GAC-TV studios to visit with On The Streets host, Suzanne Alexander.

“It was a blast,” says The Grascals’ Jamie Johnson.  “She’s good people,” adds Terry Smith.  Terry Eldredge … well, he didn’t have much to say. 
The fun-filled visit touched on the joys and rigors of touring, and the band’s two current CDs:  THE GRASCALS & FRIENDS Country Classics With A Bluegrass Spin and DANCE TIL YOUR STOCKINGS ARE HOT AND RAVELIN’ – A Tribute To The Music Of The Andy Griffith Show.
