 PRE-ORDER THE DIXIE BEE-LINERS' UPCOMING CD (And cast your vote on the title!!!)


 Item Number: BTM-PREO
Cost: $14.99 (USD) + shipping + tax where applicable

Slated for release in the fall of 2014, The Dixie Bee-Liners' third full-length studio album brings a mix of old and new. "It’s less of a career change, and more of an expansion of what we're already known for," says lead singer/songwriter BRANDI HART. "We’ve always tried to push the envelope and incorporate other influences into our music... blues, folk, old-time, country, Americana, Celtic. And our fans loved it. Now it’s time to keep on growing, and plugging in just seemed like the next logical step."

With the help of bandmates and co-producers MICK HARGREAVES and TODD PATRICK LIVINGSTON, Hart and Woodward are cooking up a new batch of compositions that reflect their "no boundaries" approach to American roots music. Other notable collaborators include KEN STRINGFELLOW of Seattle Grunge/Pop heroes The Posies (Stringfellow previously shared two co-writing credits on Susanville), as well as Blue Highway’s TIM STAFFORD and NYC anti-folk denizen LENNY MOLOTOV.

New recordings are in process at an undisclosed location out on the easternmost tip of Long Island.

 SUSANVILLE (2009, Pinecastle Records)

 Item Number: PRC-1171
Cost: $14.99 (USD) + shipping + tax where applicable

The Dixie Bee-Liners' second full-length work, Susanville, peers into the cars and trucks in America's cities and towns, bringing to life 19 breathtaking musical moments along America's interstates and byways. The band employs its signature blend of hooks and harmonies, exploring themes such as escape, adventure, memory, and regret.

"It's a soundtrack to a movie that plays in your mind," explains mandolinist and co-founder Buddy Woodward. "Each song is a vignette about a different person in a different car or truck in a different highway in America, and they're all headed either to or from Susanville."

"One of the most revolutionary bluegrass releases in recent memory" -- Greg Yost, Country Standard Time

"Poised at the crossroads of the Crooked Road and Abbey Road... a masterpiece" -- Henri Deschamps, The Bluegrass Legacy
