NASHVILLE, TENN. (May 19, 2017) - Bluegrass sensation Nu-Blu just unveiled the brand new video for their current single, "Still Small Voice." The song serves as their lead release from their brand new album Vagabonds, which hit stores last month. The upbeat sing-along also features Country Music Hall of Fame Statler Brothers singer Jimmy Fortune, with special guest, Gospel award-winning singer Ben Isaacs. The video premiered exclusively on The Boot (watch HERE). Fans can purchase "Still Small Voice" and the latest album on iTunes, Amazon and wherever music is sold.
"Our new video for 'Still Small Voice' was a load of fun to make," said Nu-Blu's lead vocalist Carolyn Routh. "We always have a great time collaborating and creating, but this video uses a little different approach. We take you inside the studio to get a real up-close and personal look at our recording process."
Filmed at Red Squared Audio in North Carolina, Nu-Blu took fans inside the studio for the fun video which features the band recording the upbeat bluegrass favorite. The video also includes in-studio footage of Jimmy Fortune and Ben Isaacs tracking Jimmy's vocals with Nu-Blu during the session at Skaggs Place Studio in Hendersonville, Tennessee.

Hailing from Siler City, NC, the textbook definition of a picturesque small southern town, Nu-Blu's heart and soul is husband-and-wife duo Daniel and Carolyn Routh. Carolyn's caramel-coated soprano is one of the band's defining traits, at times a tender lullaby, at times a freight train headed straight for you, but always unwinding a surprising tale. Daniel is the group's backbone, a multi-instrumentalist and vocalist who also handles band management. TJ Honaker on vocals and banjo, and Clint White on fiddle/mandolin round out the quartet's warm, layered, American roots sound. Together they deliver upbeat, blazing-fingers pick work just as well as gentle, heartwarming ballads, and they do it all with a natural togetherness that can't be faked, forged over hundreds of shows on the road.
