One sign of maturity in a bluegrass band is the willingness to play at a moderate tempo. One sign of virtuosity in a bluegrass band is the ability to play at a moderate tempo with driving intensity. So when the Chapman's open their second album and Pinecastle debut with the muscular but restrained "Losing Again," it grabs your attention. That they follow it up with the overly sweet "My Heart's Bouquet" is a minor misstep, but things pick up again quickly: "Follow Me to Tennessee" strikes a perfect balance between sugar and vinegar, while the swinging "Candy Kisses" harks back more to Bob Wills than to Flatt & Scruggs and the juxtaposition of Bill Monroe's "I'm Going ...

And the harmonies on the latter -- which features only bass and voices -- are nothing short of angelic. What looks on the cover like just one more traditional bluegrass album by one more family band turns out to involve layers of musicianship that you wouldn't necessarily anticipate. That's another sign of virtuosity.

    Follow Me and the new Simple Man by the Chapmans

    These guys are fantastic. I heard their album with a friend, bought my own, and then when to see them when they were in Houston, Tx. They were sooooo good. I bought another album of theirs, and we never get tired of listening. My grandkids know all the words to Simple Man, and are learning Follow Me. I totally recommend these albums, even to people who don't think they will like Bluegrass. They just might change your mind.

    This album is a must for all bluegrass lovers

    This second CD from The Chapmans just blew me away. The harmonies can be compared to the ones of County superstars Rascal Flatts. I've seen them preform a number of times now and I've been know to drive long distances to see them. They are one of the best bluegrass bands out there and in my opinion they are not getting the recognition that they deserve. They have a new CD (Simple Man)coming out shortly that will surely give them more recognition and several awards which they deserve!
