In an industry where you have stories each and every day concerning declining sales, the music program atCracker Barrel Old Country Stores continues to thrive, as it begins its’ second decade. The company is responsible for top ten albums by such Country Music Hall of Fame members as Alabama and Kenny Rogers, and also partnered up with the iconic Dolly Parton for her 2012 An Evening With Dolly CD / DVD package, which is the program’s only RIAA Gold selling project. In 2015, the 600-plus location restaurant chain resumed its’ success story by teaming up with Bluegrass legend Ralph Stanley for his Man Of Constant Sorrow disc, which featured collaborations from a wide variety of artists, such as Lee Ann Womack and Elvis Costello. The set debuted on the Billboard Top Bluegrass Albums chart at #2, and also gave Stanley his highest ranking ever on the magazine’s Country Album chart, entering the list at No. 14.
In addition to a Grammy nomination in 2015 for “Best Gospel Roots Album,” Brown has also garnered some of the strongest ink of his career. He is set to appear in Country Weekly, in an issue that will hit newsstands later this month. Other features include Billboard, CMT, The Examiner, Power Source (which Brown graces the cover for February), and many more.
