Having released over 17 albums throughout more than 20 years together, Russell Moore & IIIrd Tyme Out stay true to their roots on Timeless Hits From the Past Bluegrassed, recording classic songs that have placed an indelible mark on their career and shaped their musical style. These songs, which they’ve re-recorded with their own bluegrass flare, were originally recorded by George Jones and Tammy Wynette, Willie Nelson, The Osborne Brothers, Glen Campbell, Elvis, Merle Haggard, John Denver, Don Williams, JD Crowe & The New South, Travis Tritt and Gene Watson. Moreover, guest vocalists Sonya Isaacs (on “Golden Ring”) and Pam Tillis (on “John & Mary”) perfectly complement the group’s award-winning rich vocal blends and crowd-pleasing instrumentation.
“We are thrilled to celebrate 20 years in the music industry with a new project with Cracker Barrel Old Country Store,” said Russell Moore. “We can't think of a better way to do this than by sharing the music that has influenced us with our friends and fans, while reaching new audiences at the same time through this amazing collaboration! We love Cracker Barrel Old Country Store and when we're on tour and looking for a little piece of home, Cracker Barrel's front porches, friendly faces and home-style cooking are always a welcome sight!”
