Junior Sisk ready to release new CD

Note the CD which is the subject of this article will be featured on this Sunday's (5/30) Traditional Ties. 10:00 PM EDT, 91.3 Pittsburgh PA.


Junior Sisk and Ramblers Choice new CD "Heartaches and Dreams" will be released Tuesday, June 8.

Rebel Records and Sisk have already huddled and selected the first three selections to be promoted from the CD, following the title song.

"Heartaches and Dreams" was written several years ago by Harry Sisk Sr., and Junior said he just changed a few words.

"I've been carrying around the song for four or five years and have never sung it during a show, nor has it ever been recorded," the younger Sisk said this week. "I selected it as the title song for several reasons. My mother died Dec. 11, 2009, and that represented the heartaches. Then last fall, me and the band got to perform in the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville and that's always been a dream of mine."

"Then another dream came true when our 'Blue Side of the Blue Ridge' CD was named album of the year by the Society for the Preservation of Blue Grass Music of America (SPBGMA) at their national convention in Nashville in February," he added.

The songs selected for singles are "Train Without a Track" by Tom T. and Dixie Hall, "Working Hard Ain't Hardly Working" by Daniel Sawyer and "Guns, Coins and Jewelry" by band member and uncle Tim Massey and Rick Pardue. Read more.
