Moody Bluegrass is back for a second tribute to the Moody Blues, this time including original Moody Blues members Justin Hayward, John Lodge, Mike Pinder, Ray Thomas and Graeme Edge, along with some of Nashville’s most popular bluegrass performers.

Following 2004’s critically and commercially acclaimed tribute to the legendary Moody Blues, the Grammy-nominated Moody Bluegrass, along with the highly successful Moody Bluegrass Live, Nashville’s finest have come together again to honor the Moody Blues with “Moody Bluegrass Two…Much Love” — available nationwide on June 21, 2011.

“We have had so many cover versions of our songs over the years, but none have stood out like Moody Bluegrass. Nashville’s most outstanding musicians have once again brought a new dimension to our songs, “said Ray Thomas, co-founder of the Moody Blues.

Producer David Harvey returns for this second volume, which perfectly blends the brilliant songwriting of the Moody Blues with the bluegrass sounds of mandolins, banjos and even clogging. The collection of bluegrass covers includes Moody Blues’ members Justin Hayward, John Lodge and Graeme Edge, as well as band co-founders Mike Pinder and Ray Thomas and a wide assortment of Music City’s finest including Vince Gill, Sam Bush and Ricky Skaggs.

The record spans the entire Moody Blues catalogue, and includes fan favorites such as “Tuesday Afternoon” and “I Know You’re Out There.” “Moody Bluegrass Two” translates the Moody Blues’ original songs seamlessly and much like the first bluegrass tribute, the beauty of the original Moody Blues music shines. “Moody Bluegrass Two” also features the talents of Tim O’Brien, Harley Allen, Peter Rowan, Jan Harvey, Ronnie Bowman, Emma Harvey, Larry Cordle, John Cowan, Jon Randall, David Harvey, Tim May, Andy Hall and Andy Todd.
