Read More – Carrie Hassler: Southeast Tennessee’s leading lady of bluegrass

CarrieHassler_EAF1431-LOW“The hills of Southeast Tennessee are alive with the sound of music.

The acoustics of the banjo, mandolin, fiddle and harmonica hover over the landscape like the smoky haze known to float above the region’s mountains and valleys, and voices rise from its waters. Musical roots here are deep, and a new generation of musicians is building upon that foundation.

Her pure vocals launched her into bluegrass stardom in 2006 with the release of the album “Carrie Hassler and Hard Rain” on Rural Rhythm Records; and today, she is one of the region’s leading ladies of bluegrass, with a voice that is often compared to Etta James, Patsy Cline and Alison Krauss.
