Backyard Green Films in association with Mountain Redbird Music is proud to release James Reams and The Barnstormers latest music video. “Almost Hear the Blues” is featured on the bluegrass band’s 8th CD entitled One Foot in the Honky Tonk. The CD has made two Top Ten CD lists. Here’s what one reviewer had to say: “A wonderful bluegrass album that is just waiting for more of us to discover.
As he has consistently done, within this new volume James Reams’ life experiences and those of his ancestors permeate the songs — whether he wrote them or not — not just lending them authenticity but ensuring they are authentic. There are few bluegrass singers who match the lithe and masculine timbre Reams brings to the songs he is called to perform. With One Foot in the Honky Tonk, James Reams further defines his bluegrass, blending the varied elements of the roadhouse with sounds from the hills of Kentucky and her neighbors. One foot in the honky-tonk indeed, but the rest of the Barnstormers’ bodies and souls are deep in the bluegrass.”
