Producer Barry Bales says, “Russell Moore & IIIrd Tyme Out has been traveling the highways and byways of this country for over twenty years, bringing their talents to bluegrass music fans all over North America. Cracker Barrel Old Country Store has been providing great food and comfort to many of those same folks traveling many of those same roads. So it seems only fitting that they would now be bringing you a collection of new music from Russell and the boys. Cracker Barrel and Russell Moore & IIIrd Tyme Out all under one roof - what could be better?”
