Drive Time by Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver
About the Album
From the very first cut, a fresh version of Paul Simon’s “Gone At Last,” through the original country/bluegrass mix of “Love On Arrival” and “Country Store,” to the intricate genre-bending instrumental “Greenbriar Hop,” to the compelling cover of “Precious Memories,” Doyle Lawson fuses flawless musicianship and heart-stopping vocals with musical touches from styles beyond the bluegrass standard.
Buckle up! Drive Time isn't your daddy’s Dodge or your mama's Malibu, it's a thrill-of-a-ride you'll want to take over and over again. It brings to mind phrases such as iconic and collector’s item.Artist: Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver

Yes I have been a Doyle fan for many years and still am and play him on both of my syndicated shows "Country Roots" and "Gospel Doings" every week or as much as possible. As far as I am concerned bluegrass music begins and ends with Doyle Lawson even though the drums are not among my favorite instruments, and have him on our website; www.doitrightproductions.net
To be truthful, I could have done without the drums. I am a traditionlist, snare drum I could handle but not the kick drum, that's over kill.
Sounds pretty good so far to me..we will be featuring this along with a couple other new CDs on our next Pickin on the Porch show...more good offerings from Doyle and the crew!
Doyle has always been one to push the boundaries with his music. He has great respect for the Traditional Bluegrass but still keeps a sharp ear for what will make his music happen NOW! This is yet another recording that is sure to be a classic in the years to come.
Doyle's music doesn't need the drums. He already has a great full sound. It may win a few new fans but I'm afraid it may cost him a lot of old ones.
People said the same thing about the Osborne Brothers back in the 70's. Did they lose some "old ones"? I'm sure they did; while laughing all the way to the bank! Doyle doesn't need drums, banjo,guitar, or anything else for that matter to make music. He's proven that over and over again with stellar harmonies. I don't like everything Doyle has done. But when all is said and done, Doyle will no doubt be noted as the Father of Bluegrass Gospel Music. Not even Bill Monroe put Bluegrass Gospel on the map like Doyle. Just my opinion. I enjoy the comments! God bless you.
I have been a Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver fan for 30 years,but do not like the new album or his new sound.
I like the new lp and I am playing all the gospel from it on The Bluegrass Gospel Jamboree and also on my gospel program on WAJL am 1400 South Boston ,Va. The main reason I am the bluegrass fan and play it on the radio is the fact I feel they are the very best, I love them and so do all the folks who hear my program every week. KEEP the great music coming brother Doyle. We keep you all in our prayers as we have for many wonderful years of super songs.
