Cracker Barrel Releases Billboard-Charting Bluegrass Album

Take that, Starbucks: Cracker Barrel, the Denny's of the South, except with much-better food, is also playing the exclusive-to-its-store music game, and recently put out a winner: The Grascals and Friends' Country Classics with a Bluegrass Spin.


The album hit the top of the Billboard Bluegrass charts and clocked in at a respectable #108 on the overall charts for a genre that, beyond Bill Monroe, “Rocky Top,” “Dueling Banjos” and parts of the O, Brother, Where Art Thou? remains ridiculed by most of America (not by this wab, though: some bad-ass jams, son!) has the press release, along with one of the great name-dropping quotes in the annals of publicity: one of the Grascals enthused, “This is just icing on the cake … like Cracker Barrel gravy on the
biscuit!” The relationship has
been so great thus far. Hopefully the sales and great partnership will
continue in kind.  Also, I wish Friday fish fry was seven days a week!”

Of course, it HAD to be the bass player…
