Review for Earl Brackin Band:

This last year has been a special one for Earl as a writer and performer. The release of his second solo project has generated much interest in his writing. The song “Big Leagues” was selected for the title track of Bluegrass Bands Helping Hands’ third CD which helped raise money for the construction of a baseball field for people with special needs. Another favorite, “Grits on Her Lipstick” was included on Scenic City Sampler which features songs and artists from the Chattanooga area.  

Earl was also honored by the International Bluegrass Musicians Association when they selected him as one of 10 songwriters to be featured on their Songwriters Showcase at the IBMA Convention in Nashville.  

His most "fun" opportunity was being asked to bring a bluegrass band to play at the Winter Olympics in Sochi Russia. Earl is bringing the band that took bluegrass to Sochi to the Camp House stage.
