Doyle Lawson Celebrates 2nd Annual Bluegrass Music Appreciation Day

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on December 15, 2013 – 9:59 am -

PIGEON FORGE, TN (December 14, 2013) – Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver celebrated the 2nd Annual Bluegrass Music Appreciation Day on Thursday evening at the Christmas in the Smokies Bluegrass Festival in beautiful Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. The holiday was launched by social media guru and banjo player Lee Marcus in 2012 to raise awareness and appreciation of Bluegrass music.

In 2012, Doyle Lawson provided what Marcus called “rocket fuel” to the holiday’s inaugural year when Lawson sponsored a Favorite Song Promotion, which invited fans to name their favorite DLQ song. Lawson and his award-winning band Quicksilver, along with two red-clad North Pole types, joined in creating a fun video of the most requested song which was “Help Is On the Way.” The spot featured Lawson in a lively Christmas-flavored video, singing along side Santa and his elf, who bore a startling resemblance to Quicksilver members Josh Swift and Joe Dean. The video was shared throughout Bluegrass media, as well as via Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver’s website and Facebook page.

When Bluegrass Music Appreciation Day approached this year, Lawson again opened his song request lines, but this time Lawson asked for any song fans wanted to hear, regardless of whether he had recorded it. Favorites ranged from Tom T. Hall’s “I Love,” to the classic “Fox on the Run,” to a myriad of bluegrass gospel favorites.

Lawson chose an a cappella song originally requested by Teresa Breedlove of Maryville, Tennessee, after an overwhelming response to the song came flowing in after his Paramount Christmas concert.

The song Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver performed at the Smoky Mountain Convention Center on December 12 in honor of Bluegrass Appreciation Day is “There Is A God.”

“We’re happy to do whatever we can in support of Bluegrass music,” said Lawson, “and to give back to the fans who make it all worthwhile.”
