my best friend and I are a couple of your biggest fans we love your music we both play mandolin we want to know what are someof your faveorit songs?
Hello!! Welcome to the message board.
I have many favorite songs.....depends if you mean singing songs or instrumentals. One of my favorite singing songs is "Spread a Litttle Love Around" by Ricky Skaggs. That is such a happy song, and gives me a warm feeling when I hear it. I even called Ricky and left him a crazy message the first time I heard it. I was so excited, and I'm sure he thought my message was from a psycho. My favorite instrumental is Jerusalem's Ridge. It's a fun song to play, and I never get tired of that song. Plus it reflects a moment in history that my Dad and I observed. We were in Alabama at a festival, standing backstage watching Bill Monroe and his Bluegrass Boys. Kenny Baker was playing fiddle; and when the audience started yelling for Jerusalem's Ridge, Kenny refused to play the song, and offered his fiddle to Bill and said, "Here.....you play it." Then walked off the stage right by my Dad and I. Put his fiddle in the case, walked off stage into Bill's bus, and we watched as he literally threw clothes and all his things off the bus and into a waiting car. More information than you probably wanted to know. I just started walking down memory lane. Keep on pickin'. I will hope to hear you some time.
Was that at Chandler Mountain?
