Moody Bluegrass II Featuring Vince Gill, Ricky Skaggs, Sam Bush and More

 Following 2004's critically and commercially acclaimed tribute to the legendary Moody BluesMoody Bluegrass, along with the highly successful Moody Bluegrass Live, Nashville's finest came together again to honor the Moody Blues with Moody Bluegrass Two…Much Love available now at iTunes. Since it's release this summer the Moody Bluegrass sequel has received praise from critics:  

"'s nice to see this ultra-talented group of musicians step away from genre conventions to produce something wonderful." - Elmore

"On this outing the results are more stylistically unified..." – Country Weekly

"…as on the first volume cleverly parlays prog-rock into prog- string band." – No Depression

"If you are a fan of the Moody Blues or bluegrass, you'll find plenty to like on MB2…it proves something worth doing once is worth doing twice."  - Vintage Guitar

"The 16 tracks on this CD are all executed with precision." – Americana Gazette

"We have had so many cover versions of our songs over the years, but none have stood out like Moody Bluegrass. Nashville's most outstanding musicians have once again brought a new dimension to our songs, " said Ray Thomas, co-founder of the Moody Blues.

Producer David Harvey returns for this second volume, which perfectly blends the brilliant songwriting of the Moody Blues with the bluegrass sounds of mandolins, banjos and even clogging. The collection of bluegrass covers includes Moody Blues members Justin HaywardJohn Lodge and Graeme Edge, as well as band co-founders Mike Pinder and Ray Thomas and a wide assortment of Music City's finest including Vince GillRicky SkaggsSam Bush and more.

The record spans the entire Moody Blues catalogue, and includes fan favorites such as "Tuesday Afternoon" and "I Know You're Out There." Moody Bluegrass Twotranslates the Moody Blues' original songs seamlessly and much like the first bluegrass tribute, the beauty of the original Moody Blues music shines.
