You could say the bluegrass world has been singing the blues since Michelle Nixon took a hiatus a few years back.
The veteran singer, who has been a perennial winner in the bluegrass world for her work on the award-winning project, Daughters of Bluegrass and as the top Female Vocalist for the Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music of America in 2006 took a break after the devastating loss of her father to cancer.
Nobody’s singing the blues now…Nixon and her band Drive are back with a new album, A Place I Belong, already ranked #3 on Airplay Direct’s Top 50 albums. She returns to the spotlight with a new lineup including husband Nick Nixon on guitar and vocals, Patrick Robertson on guitar and vocals, Tim Newcomb on banjo, Mike Sharp on dobro, Jonathan Dillon on mandolin and Tracy Burcham on bass. Six of the thirteen tracks were co-written by the husband-wife duo.
When Tom T. Hall was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame, Nixon was invited to perform his legendary song “Harper Valley PTA” at the Grand Ol’ Opry. In honor of that special musical highpoint, Nixon includes her own rendition of the song on the new album, released by Mountain Fever Records.
