As the momentum continues to grow, Bluegrass mainstay Dale Ann Bradley is happy to announce her newÊfull-length release The Hard Way. The collection features 10 new recordings, all showcasing the singer/songwriterÕs heartfelt voice.Ê

Included on the highly-anticipated project is a cover of ÒWheel in the Sky,Ó which sees Dale Ann taking a unique approach to the Classic Rock song made famous by Journey. ÒI think Steve Perry is one of the best vocalists to ever live,Ó says Bradley. ÒThe whole band was at that point, and all of their songs really got your attention. It was incredible music you couldnÕt turn away from. TheyÕre just next level.Ó The Hard Way also includes original songs like ÒPretty, Dark Hearted Emma BrownÓ 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 ÒBoat On The Ocean,Ó which was written by award-winning songwriter Aaron Bibelhauser and chart-topper Milan Miller. The project concludes with BradleyÕs take on the 1970 Grateful Dead track ÒRipple.Ó The singer discovered the band in high school, with their Ôoff the cuffÕ approach catching the chart-topperÕs attention.
