ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
C hris "Bo" Isaac a talented young man from the small mining town of Wheelwright in Floyd County, Kentucky. Floyd County forms part of the "Country Music highway" on US 23 which has recently been designated as a National Scenic Byway. Many very talented country and bluegrass performers were born and raised along this 144 mile stretch of highway in the Appalachian Mountains, including Loretta Lynn, Billy Ray Cryus, The Judds, Patty Loveless, Crystal Gayle, Ricky Skaggs, Dwight Yoakam and many more. There is no doubt that Bo Isaac's name will be included in that group in the near future.

Bo was introduced to bluegrass at a young age by his grandparents Judy and Jr. Isaac. Billie Jean Osborne, the founder of The Kentucky Opry, was another important person in Bo's Life. She took him under her wing and gave him the opportunity to fiddle and dance with the Kentucky Opry Jr. pro's at the tender age of five. (This is the same organization that produced country star Rebecca Lynn Howard).

Bo has already been a band member with several top groups on the bluegrass circuit including Larry Cordle and Lonseome Standard Time, Dave Evans and Riverbend, Ernie Thacker and Route 23, Gerald Evans and Paradise, and others. Bo is now ready to take center stage with his group "The Wheelwrights", and launch his own career.

This is Bo's first solo Cd project and it was masterfully produced by Mountain Hearts, Steve Gulley (thanks Steve). Steve and everyone associated with this CD gave it all they had and the results prove it. It is a very special project for an extraordinary person with extraordinary talent -- Bo Isaac. The reviews from around the world have been absolutely exceptional!! There's no doubt that his music, talent and personality will make a major impact on the Bluegrass Music Circuit.

His bluegrass is substanch!
Playing Time – 34:16 -- When Ken Carriere of the Goodtyme label saw a young man named Bo Isaac perform, he was very impressed. What he saw was an incredible talent, a musician and songwriter with unbelievable audience appeal and fantastic potential in bluegrass music. Mountain Heart’s Steve Gulley didn’t hesitate when asked to produce Bo Isaac’s debut album. Apparently, Bo only sings on the project although he’s pictured on the cover with a guitar. The stellar supporting cast assembled for this project include many top names in bluegrass - Jason Moore, Tim Stafford, Ron Stewart, Jim Van Cleve, Adam Steffey, Steve Gulley and Dale Ann Bradley. Recorded at Dixie and Tom T. Hall’s studio in Franklin, Tn., the result is one of straight-up-and-down drivin’ grass. While Bo wrote nine of the twelve cuts, the title cut comes from the pens of Billie Smith, and Tom T. and Dixie Hall. Lyrics are included in the CD jacket, but a few have minor typos, and a couple verses were left out from the title cut.

Isaac hails from a small mining town along scenic U.S. 23 called Wheelwright in Floyd County, Kentucky. With his band called The Wheelwrights, you might see Bo singing “That Place Across The Mountains,” with a sense of optimism and desire to make a better life out of the Appalachian coal mines. He also sings about “seeking fame and fortune” in Bill Castle’s “It’s In My Mind To Wander.” Well, he’s well on his way with this album that could possibly even make my top ten list for 2006. After being introduced to bluegrass at an early age by his grandparents, Bo would eventually be working in bands with Larry Cordle, Dave Evans, Ernie Thacker, Gerald Evans, and others. Now, his goal is to succeed as the front man with his own band.

Bo Isaac is a singer of breathtaking ability and range, and his vocalizing reminds me of another who hails from that part of Kentucky – Ricky Skaggs. The choruses are powerful with Steve Gulley and Dale Ann Bradley singing harmonies. Isaac also writes his originals with a flair for stories that clearly have a beginning, middle and end. And just what the bluegrass doctor orders, the lyrics are straight-forward and conversational. I also liked the occasional catchy hook like “That’s What You Get (For Rubbing It In My Face)” or the barn-burning “Six More Miles To Nowhere.” Another sure crowd-pleaser is “The Working Man Way,” which also alludes to that better life to live when the bossman yells for overtime. Bo superbly handles his pensive love song, “We’ve Got A Good Thing Going On” and his own gospel selection, “Forgive Them (For They Know Not What They Do).”

Bo Isaac proves that he’s something special and has the qualities to go far. He’s an entertainer with considerable charisma. His bluegrass is substanch! My guess is that the telephone request lines are ringing off the hook for more of Bo’s brand of ‘grass. (Joe Ross, staff writer Bluegrass Now, Roseburg, OR.)
