– 14-time Grammy Award-winning guitarist and singer Dan Tyminski pays tribute to the late acoustic guitar ace Tony Rice on a forthcoming five-song EP, "One More Time Before You Go: A Tribute To Tony Rice," out July 22.
Molly Tuttle and Billy Strings are among the players.
Tyminski wasn't really a six-string picker, favoring mandolin or banjo until he heard Rice. Hearing Rice kick-off "Ten Degrees and Getting Colder" with J.D. Crowe and the New South for the first time, Tyminski took notice.
Upon hearing of Rice's death in 2020, Tyminski wrote a song for Rice as a way to relieve some of his grief. "I cried all day on day one, and on day two, had written the instrumental part." The song ended up being called "One More Time Before You Go," and grew into the title track of Tyminski's new EP.
Tyminski released "Church Street Blues" featuring Molly Tuttle today. Sticking closely to Rice's arrangement, Tyminski and Tuttle cross-pick their way through the long-beloved tune, trading solos and sharing vocals on the chorus.
For "One More Time Before You Go," Tyminski called fellow guitarist and multiple IBMA Award-winner Josh Williams, who had also played with Tony. Jerry Douglas, Sam Bush and Todd Phillips, play on the song as well.
The track list is:
Church Street Blues (featuring Molly Tuttle)
One More Time Before You Go (featuring Jerry Douglas, Todd Phillips, Sam Bush, Josh Williams)
Ten Degrees And Getting Colder (featuring Dailey & Vincent)
Where The Soul Of A Man Never Dies (featuring Billy Strings)
Why You Been Gone So Long (featuring Gaven Largent)
