Pinecastle is proud to announce that for the last four weeks Lorraine Jordan & Carolina Road have occupied the #1 spot on Bluegrass Today’s weekly airplay chart with their single, “That’s Kentucky.”
Their music video of the track has also been released and is available to view on YouTube and below. A big “thank you” is due to all the DJs for playing the song, all of the fans for their requests, and Tom T. Hall, Troy Engle, and Dixie Hall for writing such a great song and helping to promote it.
“I was so excited when I found out the Lorraine Jordan & Carolina Road recording of “That’s Kentucky” was the number one song again on the Bluegrass Today Charts! I believed in this song the first time I read the words to it. It pays great tribute to the Bluegrass people and the great state of Kentucky. I appreciate all those who continue to asked for it and those who continue to play it. It tells me that tradition is still alive and it can live on through a song. I am so honored to part of this tradition!” – Lorraine Jordan
