  • Description

    True to its title, this album stands with one foot firmly planted on the bedrock of traditional bluegrass music, and with the other foot, kicks open the door to fresh, new sounds and rhythms. Ricky's commitment to tradition is evident in his updated versions of the bluegrass standards "Roll In My Sweet Baby's Arms", "Shady Grove" and "Dim Lights, Thick Smoke". And, opening the door wide for newcomers, "Too Far Down To Fall" and "Halfway Home Café" are great examples of new music that will appeal to those less familiar with the genre of bluegrass music. Add in the beautiful melodies of the self-penned instrumental, "Road To Spencer", the bittersweet poignancy of "Mother's Only Sleeping" and HISTORY OF THE FUTURE combines the timelessness of acoustic and roots music with the modern sounds, arrangements, and musical influences that will chart the future course for bluegrass music.
