Several members of this six-person group were Osborne Brothers sidemen, and they tackle two Osborne classics persuasively in this 2010 release (their fourth): "Son of a Sawmill Man" and "Up This Hill and Down." Also beautifully rendered are the instrumental "Blue Rock Slide"; the cover of the Monkees hit "Last Train to Clarksville"; the gospel numbers "Satan and Grandma" and "Give Me Jesus"; and the high lonesome originals "My Baby's Waiting on the Other Side" and "Out Comes the Sun." Hank Williams Jr., guests on his dad's "I'm Blue, I'm Lonesome."
"Ah, those rascals the Grascals! They burst onto the scene … with their Nashville-style of bluegrass—crowd-pleasing in-your-face energy, a big rousing sound driven as much by soaring vocals as searing instrumentals, a repertoire largely drawn from their own writing and that of contemporary country songsmiths, but staunchly acoustic and never more than a bluesy inflection away from traditional roots."—Bluegrass Today
