“Laurel of the Mountain”
RECORD LABEL:Dark Shadow Recordings
LOCATION:Kansas City, Missouri
In anticipation of his new and upcoming Dark Shadow Recording LP, The Next Mountain (Nov. 5), Rick Faris drops his next two singles—a bridge-burning break up song feat. Ronnie McCoury, “Evil Hearted You,” and a sweet, serenading ballad, “Laurel of the Mountain.” A consummate guitarist, Faris’ six-string stroking on this track is as wooing as the song’s lyrical sentiment, making this an all-around delightful listening experience.
