We can't wait for you to hear the new release from master hymn singer Frank Newsome. On Gone Away with a Friend (out June 29), Newsome sings in the arresting lined-out tradition of the Old Regular Baptists, a direct sonic ancestor to old-time, bluegrass, and gospel. The legendary Dr. Ralph Stanley grew up hearing this once-common style and attended Newsome's church later in his life where they spent time singing together. PRE-ORDER HERE.
