We want to make sure you don’t miss out on some real gems that snuck their way into our playlists! Without further ado, let us present the album “Bridges and Backroads” from modern bluegrass veteran Jerry Salley. Jerry is a staple in the songwriter circles of Nashville and beyond, who is best known for being able to paint beautifully clear pictures with his words. He’s collabed. He’s charted.
