SONG PREMIERE: Gary Brewer & The Kentucky Ramblers Feat. Jim Lauderdale Share Striking Twang of “Pass Along the Good”

More than most, Gary Brewer & The Kentucky Ramblers have an authentic knack for honky tonk twang that reverberates of cold miller light, decorative circle tables, and vintage neon signage. After all, they’ve been doing this as long as anyone this side of Willie Nelson. This family band dates back six generations, having traveled the road performing in all 50 states, Canada and Europe extensively since forming in 1980. Today, GBKR takes the stage performing a fusion of American-Roots style music all-their-own called “Brewgrass.”

Despite being over four decades into his career, Gary Brewer is currently experiencing a new peak following the release of his 2020 album, 40th Anniversary Celebration which was a huge hit on the Billboard charts. In total, it spent an astonishing 16 weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Bluegrass Albums Chart, additionally being the No. 3 best-selling project overall in 2021 (only behind two Sturgill Simpson projects). The album was also listed between mainstream artists Ariana Grande and Rob Zombie on the all-genre ‘Top Current Albums Sales’ year-end chart. It was supported by an innovative tour that saw the group strategically navigating through the pandemic era. 

Glide is premiering the new single titled “Pass Along The Good” featuring multi-GRAMMY award-winning Americana Music Icon, Jim Lauderdale. The track was written and recorded at the Brewgrass Entertainment Studios, located in the Louisville, KY area. The results of this collaboration are composed of some of the most vital Americana ingredients out there, where top-shelf songwriting meets sublime musical instrumentation.

“Jim and I were performing together in Kentucky and reminiscing in my bus; just talking about life and so forth. I mentioned ‘Hey! You know we need to pass along the good to everyone.’ Immediately Jim said, ‘Wow! That’s a great line!’ So he wrote it down and after the concert, we made arrangements for him to come by our studio the next afternoon. We sat down, wrote, and recorded the song. I have admired Jim‘s work for years and it was an honor to write and record with him,” says Brewer about the track.
