Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver - Life is a Story
Lawson and company kick off Life is a Story with "Kids These Days," a reflective cut about how life was simpler not so long ago. With yearning lead vocals and sweet harmonies, the song does indeed make the bygone era sound like it was something very special. Joe Dean's banjo drives "Life of a Hard Workin' Man," and as always Quicksilver are making music that's relatable to most folks here, with tunes that says go ahead and cut loose but with lyrics that make it clear that party time is hard won. Among the most fun cuts are "I See a Heartbreak Comin'," "Bluegrass Blues" and the speedy closing track, "Drivin' it Home."
