Nashville, Tennessee --After taking five years to write the right songs, Julie SisterWadenews.jpg (71816 bytes)and Debbie Wade, the beautiful Nashville duo, are releasing their second album, Walls of Time. Sisters Wade, formerly on Blue Hat Records, will once again make country music traditionalists proud of the clean and rootsy sound of their new album. The new album is being released under their own indie imprint --- Seraph Records.

Sisters Wade arrived on the Country Music scene in 1999 when they debuted their critically acclaimed CD, Sisters Wade (Blue Hat Records). They garnered rave reviews from the likes of Billboard Magazine, Entertainment Weekly, Request Magazine, and Music Row Magazine. Just a year later, Sisters Wade was nominated for an Indie 2000 Award for Best Country Record by AFIM.

Sisters Wade's first single on Seraph Records, entitled "Troublemaker," is set to release on June 15 with the album to follow in mid-August.

Walls of Time contains eleven tracks, six of which were written by Sisters Wade. The album is engaging, featuring a perfect blend of harmonies, acoustic guitar, fiddle, dobro, and mandolin. The sisters' growth and maturity as songwriters is clearly reflected in the new album.

Could Bob Dylan Write A Country Song?

   When most folks think of Bob Dylan, they don't think of him as a country song writer, but a lot of household names in country music sure did as evidenced in the great country CD "Dylan Country". If you don't believe me, just ask yourself these questions. Why did Earl Scruggs record "Nashville Skyline Rag"? Why did The Country Gentlemen record "Girl From The North Country"? Why did Waylon Jennings record "Don't Think Twice, It's Alright"? Why did Johnny Cash record "It Ain't Me Babe"? Why did Hank Williams, Jr. record "I'll Be Your Baby Tonight"? I'm sure you have gotten my point by now. Well! All these recordings and many more or on the great country CD "Dylan Country". If you are interested in ordering the CD or just learning more about it, click on the picture of the CD.

Country Music Lyrics

Jerry Mac's
To Minnie Pearl

Beginnings Of Country Music

When country music began in America, there were no professional musicians. The typical musician sang only to entertain himself, his family or at local events. There is evidence of square dance-like events as far back as the 1830s (with origins in European country dancing). At first, most country music was either sung by itself or played on a lone fiddle or banjo. A good fiddler was a very popular person and was often asked to perform at events ranging from weddings to cattle drives. There was no concerted effort to preserve the songs played, but the songs that people loved lasted as they were passed from town to town or generation to generation. Songs traveled with wandering minstrels and soldiers as well as those who moved across the country for the Gold Rush or in search of a new home. Often people didn't even understand the origins or meaning of the songs (especially when words were misunderstood and the mistakes persisted in newer versions of the songs) – they just liked the tune. The music of this time has been given several names, including old-time music and mountain music.
