Husband and wife duo Darin & Brooke Aldridge draw on the traditions of their native North Carolina, the savvy of a young, gifted band and their own dedication to ingenuity to create the most adventurous album of their career with their latest release, the critically acclaimed Faster & Farther, which reached #1 (for the 2nd time since its release) on the Roots Music Reports Top 50 Bluegrass Album Chart in the summer of 2017. They have had 4 singles go to #1 from this latest album as well.
At the 2017 International Bluegrass Music Associations Awards Show, Brooke won her first Female Vocalist of the Year award, along with Darin being named the Momentum Mentor Award winner and Carley Arrowood, their amazing fiddle player winning the Momentum Instrumentalist of the Year honors.
The duo has placed several tracks at the top of the charts on Americana/Roots, SiriusXM, Bluegrass and Gospel charts. They have received multiple nominations from the International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) the Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music of America (SPGBMA) and Inspirational Country Music (ICM).
Their music videos “Wildflower” and “Tennessee Flat Top Box” were heavily featured on outlets including CMT, CMT Edge, GAC, Bluegrass Ridge TV and The Bluegrass Situation. TV appearances include PBS, Great American Gospel, The Bluegrass Road, Presley’s Country Jubilee, RFD-TV, Rural-TV, Daystar Network, Blue Highways TV, Songs of the Mountain, Woodsongs and Music City Roots.
Both highly acclaimed vocalists in their own right, Darin and Brooke combine rich harmonies with impeccable musicianship to create the unmistakable sound that has made them one of the hottest young acts in acoustic music and they’ve surrounded themselves with a band of equally amazing pickers. Darin spent 6 years as a member of the acclaimed County Gentleman and is a highly sought-after multi-instrumentalist. Brooke has been lauded for having one of the most powerful voices in music of any genre.
Snapshots, their highly acclaimed previous album, made its debut at the #8 spot on The Billboard Bluegrass Album Chart in April of 2016 and by May the first single “Tennessee Flat Top Box” had claimed the #1 position on the Bluegrass Today Chart. They ended the year by placing two songs from the album at #1 and earning critical praise in Bluegrass, Contemporary Christian and Americana.
Their latest project, Faster & Farther, boasts appearances by friends like New Grass Revival/Doobie Brothers legend, close friend, mentor and 2016-17 touring partner John Cowan, New Grass Revival member Pat Flynn, Country Music Hall of Famer and close friend Vince Gill, Union Station bassist Barry Bales and more.
They have enjoyed the busiest touring year of their career in 2016 with shows pairing them with previously mentioned John Cowan, Country Music Hall of Famer Jimmy Fortune and a Ryman appearance with hero Vince Gill. They also shared the stage with the likes of Nitty Gritty Dirt Band founding members John McEuen and Jimmie Fadden, Country/Bluegrass legend Marty Raybon and Platinum selling Country star John Berry.
In 2017 their touring pace hasn’t let up, with club, theatre and festival dates as Darin & Brooke Aldridge as well as the highly sought after show pairing with John Cowan. They also made their Grand Ole Opry debut on July 4th.
“There’s a lot about the new generation of bluegrass that sure is inspiring. And Darin and Brooke are two of my favorites of this great new generation. I’m flattered that they included me in their new record and even better, to find out they are equally as great as people.”
“Brooke asserts herself as one of the more powerful female vocalists on the scene…”
“Husband and wife duo Darin & Brooke Aldridge have carved out one of the fastest rising careers on the acoustic music scene today.” ~Billboard Magazine
