Darren Nicholson – “Arkansas Without You”
Darren Nicholson’s “Arkansas Without You” showcases an acclaimed artist in a new light. He’s released plenty of solo recordings over the years, but Nicholson is taking a big new step forward with his first release after Balsam Range. The song hits hard right out of the gate with a fresh new sound, signified by the driving banjo.
“‘Arkansas Without You’ is our bluegrass romp with a twisted story of romance, deception, and homicide. It’s our modern-day bluegrass murder ballad. I watch a lot of forensic files and true crime shows, and there are many tales like this — the darker side of the human condition. But I will say these fabulous musicians really provide an incredible stage for the story.”
