Paisley Celebrates IBMA Win, Second Month at No. 1 in Bluegrass Unlimited

To say that 2021 has been a good year for Danny Paisley would be an understatement. After recently being named the International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) “Male Vocalist of the Year,” the singer/songwriter is continuing to build upon that momentum by announcing the next single from his critically-acclaimed project Bluegrass Troubadour. “Date With An Angel” will serve as the next release from the album, available via Pinecastle Records. 

Brink Brinkman wrote about a beautiful love story that withstands the tests of time,” said Danny Paisley. “That journey from youth to old age. It’s the kind of song I love to sing! I knew the moment I heard it that I wanted to record it.”

“Date With An Angel” features powerful lyrics that detail a love story through the ages. It starts by describing a teenager on his first date with his future wife. As the song progresses, it goes on to tell how the story grows throughout the years. The depiction is on full display in the creative video for the track. With a unique twist, it includes Danny alongside his son and member of The Southern Grass, Ryan Paisley, who plays a younger version of his 3-time “Male Vocalist of the Year” father.

The critical praise for the album also continues to pour in. “From start to finish, the new collection is rooted in tradition, but with an approach that looks optimistically into the future,” says / Authority MagazineFolk Alley agrees, saying “This is deep Appalachian bluegrass, so far back in the tradition that it reflects the actual roots of most of today’s country music.”
