New Grass Revival: Can't Stop Now

I can’t believe that I haven’t featured New Grass Revival until now, but they perfect for traditional Tuesday especially with one of their better known songs “Can’t Stop Now.” From their second album on a major label “Hold to a Dream,” the band that had taken bluegrass to newest heights had their second highest charting single. “Can’t Stop Now” peaked on the country charts at 44.

Written by Gary Nicholson and Wendy Waldman, “Can’t Stop Now” features the hot licks of mandolinist Sam Bush, guitarist Pat Flynn, and banjo virtuoso Béla Fleck. Of course, a slimmer John Cowan holds down the bottom and provides the excellent lead vocals. I’ve always liked Cowan’s vocals. Take a listen to one of the most underrated acoustic bands of all time.
