It's a simple fact that Jerry Douglas is one of the most acclaimed instrumentalists in the history of country music. He's a 12-time Grammy winner, three-time CMA Musician Of The Year, 10-time Academy Of Country Music Musician Of The Year, and a two-time Americana Music Association award winner. As the opening act and featured artist with Alison Krauss + Union Station, Jerry performs before thousands of devoted fans every year, and his identity as a unique and singular solo star comes into sharper focus with every passing day.
Glide, Jerry's second album for eOne Music, is a collection of stunning performances ranging widely in style and mood, bursting with creative energy, always grounded in country/bluegrass roots, and staying completely in a contemporary setting that Jerry has helped innovate along with Krauss, Nickel Creek and others. Glide is also blessed with two guest vocal performances on songs of remarkable strength and meaning. Superstar Travis Tritt joins Jerry for "Marriage Made In Hollywood," a tough yet sympathetic commentary on the pitfalls of celebrity culture; and singer-songwriter Rodney Crowell, a Nashville legend, sings "Long Hard Road" a new classic tune in a traditional mode---uplifting, deeply melodic, and sentimental in the best sense of the word. As a follow-up to the acclaimed, Bluegrass chart-topping, TheBest Kept Secret, Glide surpasses all expectations, and is sure to gain recognition as a career-defining work by an American musical master. And, as a special Winter treat, Jerry has also released a new Americana holiday classic: Jerry Christmas! It's a spirited group of carols, traditional folk tunes, and modern seasonal songs. With a guest vocal by Grammy-nominated vocalist Maura O'Connell, Jerry Christmas! gets that warm, down-home Christmas feeling just right from the first note to the last.
