Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA – Doyle Lawson has a new album entitled You Gotta Dig A Little Deeper (Rounder Records). For his Rounder Records debut, Lawson
has assembled a stellar collection that highlights the continuing evolution of
his unique vision. Joined by Jamie Dailey (guitar, vocals), Barry Scott (bass,
vocals), Jesse Stockman (fiddle), and Terry Baucom (banjo, vocals), Lawson
expertly weaves together elements of bluegrass, country, and gospel into a sound
only definable as that of Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver.Lawson stands as one of the prime
architects of modern bluegrass, with his career now spanning four decades. In
addition to his achievements as an arranger, mandolin player, vocalist, and
bandleader, Lawson is best known for infinitely widening the bluegrass gospel
repertoire while ingeniously applying the rigorous precision of gospel harmony
to secular songs. In the process, Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver have been
recognized with four consecutive Vocal Group of the Year awards from the
