The Grascals to Release WHEN I GET MY PAY
NASHVILLE, TN—Multi-award winning Bluegrass band, The Grascals, have announced the release of their 8th album, WHEN I GET MY PAY. This album will be released on Mountain Home Music November 19th, and is available for pre-order now at iTunes.
The three-time Grammy nominated band has already released the companion video for one song on the album. “American Pickers” was penned by Jamie Johnson, Susanne Mumpower Johnson and Jeffrey East after members of The Grascals met and became friends with Mike Wolfe of the hit History Channel television show, American Pickers. Country superstar and Grascals’ pal, Dierks Bentley, lends his vocals to the album cut and appears in the music video, along with Wolfe.
“We just really love the American Pickers TV show, so it was a thrill to meet and get to know Mike,” Jamie says. “I told him we’d like to write a song for him and he thought that was a pretty cool idea. The song and video have been such fun for all of us, including Dierks and Mike, and now we’re happy to share it with fans.”
The music video was shot on location during The Grascals’ Rivestage appearance at the 2013 CMA Music Festival in Nashville and at the Cash Cabin Studio in Hendersonville, TN.
