Russell Moore and IIIrd Tyme Out 2Russell Moore & IIIrd Tyme Out at Music City Roots!Russell Moore & IIIrd Tyme Out recently made a return visit to Music City Roots – Live from The Factory in Franklin, TN and the place was packed with a very enthusiastic audience! If you missed the show, they’ve posted some photos on their website and you can check out the On-Demand LiveStream Video here. And we want to say a special thank you to Craig Havighurst for this great review of the 3TO’s portion of the show!
“Russell Moore and Co. hit the stage with a single that’s done great at radio and no surprise because ‘Brown County Red’ has an infectious waltz time and irresistible subject matter: murder and justice. There’s blood and intimations of a hanging. Rock! They also did John Hartford’s timeless ‘Gentle On My Mind’ with easy aplomb. And they pulled out a fascinating cover with ‘Lowlands,’ a cool and moody song from one of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band Circle albums. I love its barely-there melody. The award-winning quintet poured on the classic sauce with the Carter Family’s ‘Are You Tired Of Me My Darlin,’ one of my favorite songs to sing in the world (not directed at anyone mind you). And the band’s phenomenal mandolin player Wayne Benson anchored ‘Spindale,’ a hot instrumental named for one of the mill towns in the NC piedmont that birthed Earl Scruggs. Set closer ‘I’m Leaving You And Fort Worth Too’ was a speedy and triumphant declaration of independence, a little bit snarky and a lot of fun.”
