Cordle - self-producing - has elected to surround himself by some fine bluegrass pickers. While several musicians are featured, Mike Bub (bass), Aubrey Haynie (fiddle), Clay Hess (guitar) and Chris Davis (mandolin) comprise an instrumental core tough to beat. Jody King and Ron Block split banjo responsibilities, while Rob Ickes guests on Weissenborn. Don Rigsby, Jerry Salley and Brandon Rickman are among the well-known contributing background and harmony vocals.
This is Cordle's 11th eleventh album, including those with Lonesome Standard Time; "Tales From East Kentucky," featuring songs tied to Cordle's experiences, certainly stands with the best of them.

Cordle's original songs that have been recorded by some of Country music's biggest names. On this album he shares duets (actually alternate leads) with 12 of his Nashville friends, including Garth Brooks, Kathy Mattea, Trisha Yearwood, Dierks Bentley, Travis Tritt, Alison Kraus and Ricky Skaggs (HIGHWAY 40 BLUES), among others, but puts everything into a Bluegrass setting. He makes use of a variety of skilled musicians here, like Stuart Duncan, Andy Leftwich, Carl Jackson, Kristen Scott Benson, and Booie Beach. Who can forget his "Murder on Music Row", which made few friends in Nashville --it is here sung by Cordle with Daryle Singletary. An interesting and well done recording.

Nashville based Cordle is a distinguished songwriter, successful both in the bluegrass and the country fields. Here as usual he comes up with a bunch of clever, well written songs, and he delivers them nicely, with the help of some well-known artists like Ronnie Bowman, Del McCoury, Cal Jackson, Randy Kohrs, Clay Hess, Buck White and others. An interesting and enjoyable album.

One is a rock ’n’ roll giant. The other is a bluegrass powerhouse. Both make music for the ages. CMH proudly presents Lonesome Skynyrd Time: A Bluegrass Tribute to Lynyrd Skynyrd by Larry Cordle and Lonesome Standard Time. In the hands of this award winning bluegrass band, Skynyrd classics such as “Sweet Home Alabama” and “Gimme Three Steps” are passionately redefined. Lightning fast picking and smoldering bluegrass vocals go right to the country heart of Skynyrd’s great songs, and the result is a powerful homage to the endurance and influence of Lynyrd Skynyrd’s Southern fried sound.
