Rural Rhytmn Records Announces Two #1s, Bluegrass Charts

Rural Rhythm Records Announces Two #1s
Bluegrass Unlimited Magazine National Survey Charts (May)

Rural Rhythm Records is pleased to announce two #1s on the May 2009 Bluegrass Unlimited Magazine National Bluegrass Survey with LONESOME RIVER BAND climbing to #1 on the Top 15 Album Chart (“NO TURNING BACK”) and CARRIE HASSLER & HARD RAIN at #1 on the Top 30 Single Chart (“I Can Go Back Anytime” from the album "CHHR2"). "We are thrilled to have a #1 song and album at the same time on the chart by two different artists. The artists and Rural Rhythm are very thankful to the Bluegrass Unlimited reporting stations, plus all the bluegrass radio stations worldwide who have been incredibly supportive of the song and album," said Sammy Passamano III, Rural Rhythm.

Lonesome River Band makes a strong appearance elsewhere on the chart with two songs from "NO TURNING BACK" appearing in the Top 30 Singles: “Them Blues,” (written by Bob “Cadillac” Holmes) climbing yet again to reach #4; plus another song, “Like a Train Needs a Track” (written by Marvin E. Clark and Jerry Salley) rising to #24. The album was produced by the Lonesome River Band.

Carrie Hassler and Hard Rain remain in the Top 15 Albums with “CHHR2” appearing at #12. Songwriter, Jennifer Strickland, has proven to be a perfect match for the band, penning “I Can Go Back Anytime,” plus the 2008 hit, “Going on the Next Train,” (from the group’s previous self-titled CD) that reached #11 on the Top 30 last year. Both of the band's Rural Rhythm albums were produced by Jim VanCleve.

Another Rural Rhythm artist receiving chart success for May is Melonie Cannon who climbs again to reach #9 on the Top 30 Singles with “I Call It Gone” (written by Marla Cannon-Goodman, Jennifer Hanson, Michael Heeney). The song is from her current album, “AND THE WHEELS TURN,” at #13 on the Top 15 Albums. The CD was produced by Buddy Cannon and Ronnie Bowman.

Audie Blaylock & Redline's new self-titled CD makes a fast appearance in the Top 15 Albums debuting at #12. The single, “Whispering Waters,” (written by Stanley Keach and Bill Tidwell) moves up to #25. The CD was produced by Audie Blaylock and has been receiving rave reviews since its January release.
