Bobby Mackey has always been known for his traditional sound and for sticking to the roots of country music and it's his dedication to the traditional music that inspired him to add a new twist to his entertainment. Dennis Hensley of Jordan Recording Studios in Covington, KY called in some of the best bluegrass musicians in the business: Adam Steffey, Michael Cleveland, Clay Hess, Ben Isaacs, Billy Rose and Tom Adams. Bobby recorded what he calls some of his best recordings ever and was delighted to have Rhonda Vincent, her brother Darrin, and Sonya Isaacs join him in the studio to share their great talent on some songs such as "Ashes of Love", "Ten Shades of Green" and others.
Bobby has formed a band he calls "The Pine Hill Pickers" and is now playing bluegrass shows and enjoying every minute of it. He would like to present to you a copy of his new bluegrass CD "Ten Shades of Green" produced by Adam Steffey.
