After 35 years of releasing hit after hit, Lonesome River Band is back with yet another stellar project. Their new album Mayhayley's House is out today on Mountain Home Music Company. It is available for purchase and streaming at many outlets including iTunes where it is a featured release on the Country music home page.

Mayhayley's House is dedicated 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. She was a quintessential southern woman seer, a well-known lawyer, political activist, midwife and teacher until her death in 1955. Folks would come to her house, pay her "a dollar and a dime" for a reading—to find lost items, predict the future, even to solve crimes. She would also dabble in local politics, lawyering, and farming. Most of all she represented the stout hardiness of independent backwoods folk that sustained traditions and distrusted the encroachment of modern ways. It was rumored, for instance, that what money she had was buried in multiple plots somewhere on her property.

Lonesome River Band, the bluegrass tinkers of tradition, dedicate this album to Mayhayley; to its fans; and, to people who understand that traditions once lost are rarely recovered.
Tracks and songwriters include:
1. Wrong Road Again (Allen Reynolds)
2. As Lonesome As I Am Matt Lindsey, Shawn Camp)
3. Mayhayley's House (Adam Wright)
4. Old Coyote Town (Larry E. Boone, Gene Nelson, Paul Nelson, Jr.)
5. Blackbirds And Crows (Don Humphries)
6. Ida Red (Arr. Lost and Found, PD)
7. Diggin' (Eli Johnston, Kevin McKinnon)
8. As The Crow Flies (Melba Montgomery, Billy Wayne Yates)
9. Lonesome Bone (Curtis Wright)
10. Think I'm Gonna Be Alright (Robert J. Gateley)
11. It Feels Real Good Goin' Down (Shawn Camp)
12. Hickory Hollow Times and County News (Matthew Lindsey, Herb McCullough)
13. Fly Around My Pretty Little Miss (PD, arr. Mike Hartgrove, Jesse Smathers)

Sammy Shelor, a five-time International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) Banjo Player of the Year, Virginia Country Music Hall of Famer, and winner of the Steve Martin Prize for Excellence in Banjo and Bluegrass, leads the group that is constantly breaking new ground in acoustic music. With two stellar lead vocalists, Brandon Rickman (guitar) Jesse Smathers (mandolin), and the impressive talents of Mike Hartgrove (fiddle) and Barry Reed (bass), the band seamlessly comes together, performing the trademark sound that fans continue to embrace.
