Song Of The Day #393

Ranch Radio takes a look at the classic sound of traditional bluegrass this week.

We'll start with Bill Monroe and The Blue Grass Boys performing Toy Heart and Will You Be Lovin' Another Man.

The tunes are from 1949 and 1946, and I picked them because Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs were in the band. The sound of Flatt singing lead and Monroe singing harmony was never equaled in traditional bluegrass. If only they could have stayed together, but it was not to be.
