This week we are looking back to 2010 when we recorded a special episode at The Clay Center for the Arts & Sciences during FestivALL Charleston. Our guests included Dierks Bentley, who brought along bluegrass family band The Travelin’ McCourys to perform songs from his then just-released album Up On The Ridge. The band’s air-tight performance of the title track is our Song of the Week.
