Oh Hey Friday | Bluegrass

One quick thing before we get on to the Five on Friday link up. Terrence over at Girl Repurposed was so kind to feature me on her blog as a farmer's wife.  Go check out her amazing post that she put together about being a farmer's wife!

Okay, now on to the good stuff:

Today I'm linking up with The Farmer's Wife & September Farm for Oh Hey Friday.  I love this link up because you can write about what ever you want to as long as its five things.

Bluegrass has always been a huge part of my life.  Growing up my grandmother would listen to bluegrass like it was the newest thing on the radio.

It wasn't till I got older that I realized how much of an influence this had on me.  Bluegrass just touches the soul and makes a person feel like they can dance the night away.

I started playing banjo when I was 20 years old and have picked around with it for the last 9 years.  It's relaxing and a great way to pass the time.

The thing with bluegrass music is when they record an album they don't have all this junk added in.  The way you hear them on their album is the same exact way that you will hear them in concert.

If your not a bluegrass listener, just give it a whirl.  I know that bluegrass is not every one's forte but just give it a chance, you might be surprised!

Here are five of my favorite bluegrass bands and some of my favorite songs by them:

1. Ralph Stanley


2. Rhonda Vincent


3. Dailey and Vincent


4. Lonesome River Band


5. Balsam Range


and 1 more

6. Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver


I could go on and on about bluegrass and how wonderful it is.  The songs I chose for each artist or group are some of my favorites!  Hope you enjoyed!


  1. My husband and I are also big fans of bluegrass!

    1. Awesome! We love bluegrass festivals in the summer and just listening to it going down the road!

  2. My whole family loves bluegrass... I live in Alabama and on the Alabama Public Radio Station they host a bluegrass/bluegrass gospel every Saturday night. We look forward to it every week. My husband also is learning to play the banjo.

    1. We also have a station on Sunday nights that has a bluegrass show. It is so fun to listen to all the new stuff that is coming out. The banjo is an addicting instrument! It's fun to learn how to play!

  3. Thank you for sharing this! Ive never really listened to Bluegrass but Rhonda Vincent is AMAZING!! Loved that song!

    1. She earned her spot at the Queen of Bluegrass
