The Grascals Return In September With ‘Before Breakfast’

The Grascals‘ newest album, Before Breakfast, is set for release Sept. 1, and fans who pre-order the new collection will receive “Sleepin’ With The Reaper” as an instant grat track.

The 12-song album includes tunes like “Delia,” which features Grascals’ guitarist John Bryan on clawhammer banjo, the melancholy ballad “Lonesome” which was penned by Terry Smith and his brother Billy, the gospel jewel “I’ve Been Redeemed,” and the Flatt and Scruggs-penned “He Took Your Place.”

This is the second project this configuration of The Grascals has recorded together.  The current group features founders Terry Eldredge (lead vocals, guitar), Terry Smith (lead vocals, bass) and Danny Roberts (mandolin), plus longtime banjo ace Kristin Scott Benson, fiddler Adam Haynes and John Bryan (lead vocals/guitar).

The group continues to evolve organically, as evidenced by their latest endeavor.  “We’re even breathing together vocally,” Terry Smith explains. “The Osborne Brothers always said that when you get to that point, it was right – and they were on to something.”
