Since its formation over 37 years ago, the award-winning Lonesome River Band continues its reputation as one of the most respected names in Bluegrass music. Whether performing on the famous stage of the Grand Ole Opry or headlining major concert events & festivals, their loyal fans continue to support one of the most loved and most influential acts of our time.
Lonesome River Band’s vocal and instrumental talents seamlessly come together as they perform their trademark sound that fans continue to embrace. Their vocal and instrumental skills are performed by: acclaimed singer-songwriter Brandon Rickman on lead vocals & guitar; the 2017 IBMA Momentum Award Vocalist of the Year Jesse Smathers on lead vocals & mandolin; fiddle extraordinaire Mike Hartgrove; outstanding bassist Barry Reed; and Virginia Country Music Hall of Famer, Steve Martin Prize Winner, and five-time IBMA Banjo Player of the Year, Sammy Shelor.
The stellar harmony vocals by Rickman and Smathers is certainly highlighted in the band’s recent albums. In 2018, Lonesome River Band received an IBMA Album of the Year nomination for their self-produced Mayhayley’s House on the Mountain Home Music Company label. They dedicated the album to Mayhayley Lancaster, a self-proclaimed “Oracle of the Ages” who handed out “readings” and personal predictions at her home in southwest Georgia’s Heard County. The bluegrass tinkers of tradition also dedicated the album to its fans; and, to people who understand that traditions once lost are rarely recovered. The musicianship, song selection and vocals are stellar.
