I’m so pleased that the record that almost didn’t get made is now widely available! Physical CDs and T-shirts are available in the Mary Bragg Store, and digital is available here.
It’s been a wild month leading up to this day.
‘Lucky Strike’ won the prestigious MerleFest Chris Austin Songwriting Contest last weekend. It was surreal and I’m still trying to wrap my mind around it. The Bluegrass Situation premiered ‘Wildfire,’ the second single from the record. The Daily Country premiered ‘Done Ain’t Done,’ the third single, and reviews for the album have started rolling in:
“With a voice like a clear mountain stream, rippled with emotion and swirled with a hint of gold-dust gravel, she infuses each song with a panful of passion quickened by intelligent lyrics and resonant melodies, all backed up by superb musicianship and production.” –Blogcritics
“Whether accompanied by upbeat acoustic licks or aching pedal steel, Bragg’s crystalline voice is the centerpiece of the album that elevates this revealing glimpse into her soul. Lucky Strike carries a distinctive authenticity, born through the intimate connection made with the listener through her vulnerable, soul-baring lyrics.” –Mother Church Pew
“Raw, vulnerable, at times even visceral, Bragg will transport you lyrically and with her remarkably emotive vocals.” –Elmore Magazine
And, Nash Country Daily interviewed me about all things Lucky Strike.
Now go listen!
