.
(Webster) Yesterday The Grascals released Dance Til Your Stockings Are Hot and Ravelin': A Tribute To The Music of The Andy Griffith Show).

Dance finds the band rendering tracks like "Boil Them Cabbage Down," Ol' Joe Clark," and the irrepressible "Mayberry's Finest Theme." The group was so caught up in the spirit of the show that they recorded a brand new, original song, "Boy, Giraffes Are Selfish," based on a favorite line from one of the episodes.

The music featured on The Andy Griffith Show held a mirror to the folksy, fun stories and characters of the iconic series. Thoughtful, sincere and with a dash of humor, their message always rooted itself in doing the right thing and upholding Mayberry's small-town values. "The Andy Griffith Show had a moral lesson that every human being should live by," vocalist / guitarist Terry Eldredge comments, "It's an honor and privilege to be associated with the best TV show ever made. It was and still is - awesome family entertainment."

Injecting a new energy into a classic American sound, The Grascals have quickly become one of bluegrass and country music's rising stars. Since their debut album in 2004, The Grascals have been nominated for two Grammy Awards, received the SPBGMA's 2011 Instrumental Group of the Year, SPBGMA's2010 Bluegrass Band of the Year, SPBGMA's 2009 Album of the Year and IBMA's (2007, 2006) Entertainer of the Year.

The Grascals are currently in the midst of an extensive north-American tour.
