2018 release. Emanating from the bluegrass heartland between Galax, Virginia, and Mt. Airy, North Carolina, Mickey Galyean and Cullen's Bridge are bearers of a tradition that has thrived there for generations. Band leader Mickey Galyean grew up in bluegrass. His late father Cullen was a lifelong picker. The band's name is a perpetual tribute to him as well as a statement on it's musical philosophy. Hot on the heels of the group's Rebel debut My Daddy's Grass - which topped Bluegrass Unlimited's "National Bluegrass Survey" - Songs From the Blue Ridge gives every indication of being a radio and fan favorite. The disc is evenly divided between band originals and bluegrass fare. Unapologetic bluegrass is what Mickey Galyean & Cullen's Bridge deliver. Pounding rhythms, searing vocals, strong melodies and just the right mix of deft originals and ripened treasures; that's the formula that works for this group!
