Nashville, Tenn. (February 10, 2016) – Bluegrass crowd favorites Lorraine Jordan & Carolina have turned a lot of heads with their latest project, Country Grass. The band continues to leave their mark on the genre with the latest video for “Do You Wanna Go to Heaven.” The track features 21-time country chart-topper T.G. Sheppard on the classic song, which recently celebrated its 35thAnniversary since topping the country charts. The video for the new bluegrass version of the song premiered exclusively on The Boot.
