As the momentum continues to grow, Bluegrass mainstay Dale Ann Bradley is happy to announce her new full-length release The Hard Way. The collection features 10 new recordings, all showcasing the singer/songwriter's heartfelt voice.
Included on the highly-anticipated project is a cover of "Wheel in the Sky," which sees Dale Ann taking a unique approach to the Classic Rock song made famous by Journey. "I think Steve Perry is one of the best vocalists to ever live," says Bradley. "The whole band was at that point, and all of their songs really got your attention. It was incredible music you couldn't turn away from. They're just next level." The Hard Way also includes original songs like "Pretty, Dark Hearted Emma Brown" which was co-written by Bradley with her brother, marking his first ever penned song, which has an old Appalachian theme. Another standout moment occurs on the uptempo "Boat On The Ocean," which was written by award-winning songwriter Aaron Bibelhauser and chart-topper Milan Miller. The project concludes with Bradley's take on the 1970 Grateful Dead track "Ripple." The singer discovered the band in high school, with their 'off the cuff' approach catching the chart-topper's attention.
