LOUISVILLE, KY - "Ride This Road," from Kentucky singer-songwriter, Aaron Bibelhauser, dropped worldwide August 22nd and not a moment to soon. This is the second installment from the forthcoming project titled Lovin' and Leavin, A Bluegrass Tribute to Mickey Clark. "Ride This Road" follows the very successful hit "Wyoming Child" that was released back on May 2nd and reached all the way up to the #2 spot on the Bluegrass Weekly Song Chart. Bluegrass fans have been anxiously awaiting more from this powerful singer and forthcoming project.
Aaron's lead vocal and guitar on the track are supported by Michael Cleveland on mandolin and fiddle, Steve Cooley on banjo, Chris Douglas on bass, and Missy Armstrong and Adam Bibelhauser on harmony vocals. This is another great song written by legendary country music singer-songwriter, Mickey Clark, and given a bluegrass flavor by Aaron and his carefully chosen cast of musicians and vocalists.
“Aaron Bibelhauser turns his attention away from songwriting to lean his giant voice into a batch of songs penned by one of his local heroes and personal influences, Mickey Clark. “Ride This Road” highlights that voice with a particular octave acrobatic that most good singers couldn’t do and wouldn’t even try. Aaron’s work brings home so much of what is right about bluegrass in the first place, namely: hot-picking’, powerful singing and authentic reverence for tradition. “Ride with Me?,” Buddy, you don’t have to ask twice.” -Mike Finders, FY5, Fort Collins, Colorado
