Fans can now download or stream this chilling and evocative song HERE, and get a taste of what’s to come from the forthcoming album.

“I’m super excited to be releasing a second single from our soon to be released Country Grass II. The last project was such a success, and I had a chance to record with some of the top classic country artists from the past,” says Lorraine Jordan. “This project will be featuring some new artists, including one who was recently Inducted into the Grand Ole Opry and a local classic country band of brothers who grew up in the same eastern part of North Carolina as I did. We’ll let you guess who these might be. Stay tuned!”

“Keepers of the Flame” is a haunting ballad crafted by renowned songwriter David Stewart. This poignant track honors the fallen heroes who first ignited the enduring flame of traditional Country music, which has often intertwined with Bluegrass. With lead vocalist Allen Dyer’s powerful delivery and Lorraine’s signature harmonies woven throughout, the song strikes a deep emotional chord. Notably, this release is the first Country Grass single showcasing Lorraine Jordan & Carolina Road as the sole featured artist. It serves as the follow-up to the project’s previous single “I Loved ‘Em Every One” featuring T.G. Sheppard.

The single is already in rotation at multiple radio stations. Doug Whitley, host of Highway 40 Bluegrass, airing on The Bluegrass Jamboree gave listeners a first-listen of the track. In celebration of the new single, Lorraine’s Coffee House & Music, located in Garner, N.C., is hosting a single release party this evening (May 31). Fans in attendance will have the opportunity to hear the song in person for the very first time. The show will also be simulcast on Facebook on multiple platforms including the official Pinecastle Records page, The Bluegrass Jamboree, Lorraine’s Coffee House & Music, and more!

“As Troubadours, I believe we all have a love to help our music evolve for future generations, as well as holding true to our roots,” says songwriter David Stewart. “There is a flame that burns in all of us for the music and a desire to keep the flame burning for those coming up in the genre and for our heroes who have gone on before us.”
