Today, jamgrass quintet Greensky Bluegrass has released their seventh studio album, All For Money, via the band’s own label, Big Blue Zoo Records.The follow up to 2016’s Shouted, Written Down & Quoted, the new twelve-track record was recorded at Echo Mountain Recording in Asheville, NC alongside co-producers Dominic John Davis (Jack White’s longtime bassist) and Glenn Brown.From the instant you hit play, you know this Greensky record is a new thing. “Do It Alone” is brought to life with the slight feedback of an instrument being plugged into a hot amp, giving way to an ethereal swirling of energy that Paul Hoffman quickly fills with a slippery, staccato beat, and distorted, dream-like vocals that draws the listener in. Greensky’s effortless slipping back and forth between a whisper and a howl is a fan favorite weapon in their arsenal, and it never fails to enchant. Guitarist Dave Bruzza quickly launches the second track, “Murder Of Crows,” with his nasal vocal counter point to Hoffman’s histrionics to great effect. Aided by dobro wizard Anders Beck‘s first break out moments of the new disc, the track’s frenetic pace gets the blood pumping in a way that only bluegrass can.The confidence that Greensky Bluegrass has in themselves is well earned and on full display with this new release.”What You Need” isn’t overtly braggadocios, just self sure and fearless. Having established their strength, the band allows themselves a moment of introspection with “Ashes” that showcases not only Hoffman’s talent for vulnerable lyrics, but the delicate string work the band is more than capable of.Fans love when Greensky stretches things out onstage, and “Courage For The Road” shows them ready to go that route in the studio as well. Clearly this nine-minute masterpiece, with its epic lyrical narrative and swirling solos, is destined to become a show centerpiece for decades to come. After scaling such heights on early tracks like “Collateral Damage”, “Like Reflections” could be overlooked by dazed listeners if it wasn’t for the amount of sheer heart the band gives each note. “Like Reflections” stands tall as the most entrancing Bruzza lead yet recorded by the band, and his bandmates aid in making the song an unforgettable experience.“Wish I Didn’t Know” evokes other Hoffman tunes with it’s vulnerability and echoing sincere humanity, which perfectly counterpoints the mechanical precision of Michael Arlen Bont‘s deft banjo fretwork. Never a band to shy away from the darkness that lies within us all, Greensky gets scary with “It’s Not Mine Anymore.” The track’s soaring fills from Beck and the distorted, overlapping vocals, brings a nightmare element to the song, which lasts with the listener long after the last note fades. Luckily for the easily scared, Hoffman has a perfectly conceived and presented ode to the feeling we feel when in the presence of the one who lights your life, and the fear we feel when we have to part to wash away the lingering doubt.The album’s title track “All For Money” feeds off the quickened heartbeat that bassist Mike Devol imbues it with, to ask a rather poignant philosophical question, “Why do we do the things we do?” Over its nearly eight-minute run time, the band posits the fact that life is better when we do things for personal growth not financial gain. It’s a remarkably astute observation and one that is clearly born from the success that Greensky has achieved.All For Money is a significant step forward for Greensky Bluegrass. The sheer advancement in every facet of their collective whole, including string work, lyrical thought, vocal presence, and sonic diversity, is astounding and inspiring. Greensky Bluegrass hasn’t just created an album to be proud of, they’ve charted a path to success through hard work, dedication, and inspiration that all bands would do well to follow.Greensky Bluegrass – ‘All For Money’ All For Money Tracklisting: 1.

Thomas has an opportunity to play against the Seahawks this season; Baltimore will travel to Seattle in Week 7. Thomas, 30, signed a four-year, $55 million contract ($32 million guaranteed) with the Ravens on March 13 after becoming a free agent in the offseason. He told Anderson he was ready to sign a one-year contract with the Chiefs — he even told coach Andy Reid he was coming to Kansas City — before his agents informed him of the Ravens’ offer. Thomas was in a contract dispute with the Seahawks at the time, and he told Anderson that Carroll spoke with him about a possible new deal days before Thomas suffered a leg fracture in Week 4 against the Cardinals. Thomas added that Carroll’s actions right after the injury didn’t seem genuine MORE: Titans reportedly give Kevin Byard record contract for safeties”When Pete came (over) trying to act like he was concerned, I was like, ‘You won, bro,’ and just kept it moving,” Thomas told Anderson.Thomas gave Carroll the finger as he was being carted off the field. The NFL fined Thomas $13,369 for the gesture, which it termed “unsportsmanlike conduct.”Thomas also told Anderson his working relationship with Carroll was in decline.”It was just we didn’t see eye to eye on a lot of things, like work ethic,” he said. “Sometimes I didn’t want to practice, especially when they weren’t paying me. I wasn’t practicing like that and he wasn’t feeling it. The gap just . . . spread.”Here’s my sit-down w/ #Ravens S Earl Thomas. Thomas reflects on how his career ended in Seattle, t/ time it took to get a great contract in free agency & how he’s being tested like never before in Baltimore. Always appreciate Earl’s truth & character. Good job producing Eric Diaz pic.twitter.com/NLffclrgTL— ig: josinaanderson (@JosinaAnderson) July 25, 2019Carroll hinted at discord in the relationship the night Thomas was injured”It wasn’t always smooth, but it’s always been good,” Carroll told reporters in his postgame comments. On the one hand, Earl Thomas says he “hurt himself” with the Seahawks when he flipped off coach Pete Carroll after suffering an season-ending injury last year. On the other hand, he doesn’t feel remorse for making the gesture.”Because I felt (Carroll) wasn’t being honest with me,” Thomas told ESPN’s Josina Anderson in an interview that aired Wednesday.

OAKLAND — The Warriors seemingly make history every time they step on the court. That is just what happens when Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green play basketball.Curry matched his career-high at Oracle Arena with a 51-point performance against the Wizards. Durant scored 25 of his 41 points in the fourth quarter against the Knicks at Madison Square Garden. Against the Bulls, Thompson set an NBA record for most 3-pointers made in a game (14).

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest We are still on the wet side. We have had about five inches for the month so far, but I think the lack of heat rather than too much water is holding us back at this point. I would hope we could maybe get started late this week.We did get some burndown snuck in between rains. We’d really like to get that full rate of 2,4-D on this bean ground. The colder temperatures have held the weeds in check so far.Our tile project has started. That is a 40-year dream come true. That has been one of our wettest farms but the landlord never wanted to spend the money. Now we own the farm and it could be one of our best pieces of dirt once we get it drained.We have seen very little activity the past week and virtually nothing has been done. I have seen just a few guys here and there working down tile lines or out picking up rocks. There is still a lot of ground that has been untouched in this area. There are still some guys that haven’t topdressed wheat. There are a couple of pieces of wheat around here that look really outstanding, but there are some that look rough, either from ponding over the winter or just getting beat up.I know that everybody gets pretty busy this time of year. I encourage everyone to think about the toll this takes on your body. I just found out that I am a candidate for knee replacement in the next five to eight years. I would consider myself pretty young for that. While we are jumping off trucks and tractors because we are in a hurry trying to make things happen, it can cost you in the long term.
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Dear Friend,The seriousness of the water quality issue as it pertains to Ohio agriculture has never been greater than it is right now.With the recent passage of the Lake Erie Bill of Rights (LEBOR), Lake Erie has now been granted the same legal rights normally reserved for a person. That means that any Toledoan who believes a business in the watershed is doing something they deem as detrimental to the lake could sue on the lake’s behalf.It was no secret that if LEBOR passed, agriculture would have the biggest target on its back. Farmers statewide need to be aware of its possible implications.Wood County farmer Mark Drewes has taken the lead in challenging LEBOR in court. And this letter from every major agriculture group in the state is to let you know we fully support him.Drewes acted quickly and took a strong approach when he bravely stood up for his family farm and all farms in Ohio by taking legal action to prevent senseless lawsuits stemming from LEBOR.We wholeheartedly agree with Drewes’ strategy, especially with the threat of legal actions against our members. But many of our family, friends and neighbors may see this as a message that Ohio agriculture doesn’t care about water quality and farmers do not want to fix what we acknowledge is a major problem in our state. We all know this is simply not true, but as the saying goes, “If you don’t tell your story, someone else will.”It’s time to step out of our comfort zone to better share our best practices with those outside of agriculture and reach out to those who don’t know or understand just how committed we are to healthy water in Ohio.Our members are making many management changes in the name of clean water. From planting cover crops, to installing buffers and waterways, to using variable rate fertilizer application equipment, to improved manure management, farmers are taking on the responsibility of doing the right things to improve water quality for all Ohioans.As we evaluate our operations and what measures we are taking for cleaner water, we have to ask if we can do more. Is what we do enough to make our community feel good about our nutrient management efforts? Do those who question our methods fully understand the extent of what we do to protect our shared water?This is an urgent time to talk to your neighbors. Share how the vast majority of farmers in Ohio are being proactive in finding a balance between producing food and protecting water. These are tough conversations but they are necessary conversations. We need to make our case to those who need to hear it.Work continues with the new administration and state legislators, who understand that agriculture needs to be a part of the water quality solution. Ohio agriculture is also working cooperatively with the conservation and environmental communities to discuss the resources needed to address and remedy Ohio’s water quality problems.Our message can reach far beyond our fence rows by sharing it online, too. Take pictures of the practices you use on the farm and share why taking the initiative for clean water is so important for you, your family and your farm. Use the hashtag #farmers4oh2o on your social media platforms and let’s use this opportunity to show the public our good work on the water quality front.We stand beside Drewes Farms and their efforts to protect every one of us and our way of life by defending Ohio agriculture against the legal fallouts from LEBOR. Now let’s step up to reach even more people about agriculture’s positive role in protecting the environment.Sincerely,Ohio AgriBusiness Association, Ohio Cattlemen’s Association, Ohio Corn and Wheat Growers Association, Ohio Dairy Producers Association, Ohio Farm Bureau, Ohio Pork Council, Ohio Soybean Association, Ohio Poultry Association, and Ohio Sheep Improvement Association
