|NEW SINGLE FROM DARIN & BROOKE ALDRIDGE “Blue Baby Now” at Radio 3/19/21|
|Nashville, TN — Billy Blue Records is pleased to announce the release of a new single from multi-award winning duo, Darin & Brooke Aldridge. “Blue Baby Now” hits radio airwaves on Friday, March 19th and features the captivating vocals that have made Brooke Aldridge a 4-time (and reigning) IBMA Female Vocalist of the Year. Darin, Brooke and their band always bring something deliciously new to the table when they serve up a fine cover. Recorded years ago by Grand Ole Opry stars, The Whites, “Blue Baby Now” is given a lilting, mid-tempo twist by Darin and Brooke; a variation from its earlier incarnation as a ballad. “Who doesn’t love a good bluegrass song that sticks with you from the first moment you hear it? That’s how Blue Baby Now has always been for Darin and me,” Brooke says. “I remember first hearing a slower, more laid back country version from The Whites on an album released in the 80’s. I had already been singing this song when Darin and I met but had kicked the tempo up to be a more banjo driven bluegrass tune. Guess you could say I was a ‘blue baby’ myself… until Darin came into my life!” The couple hadn’t thought of the song in a long time, but both happened to mention it while making plans for their new album.“Singing ‘Blue Baby Now’ was, and still is, literally like taking a stroll down memory lane,” Brooke says. “We knew it had to be the first single to kick off a new album with our new label, and here it is! We hope folks will enjoy listening to this one as much as we loved recording it.” “Blue Baby Now,” written by Cindy Richardson and Ave Aldridge, is set to appear on the Aldridge’s forthcoming album on Billy Blue Records. The project is being produced by Darin Aldridge and Mark Fain.|
