The Dixie Bee-Liners - Ripe CD

With a cult following reaching far beyond their southwestern Virginia stomping grounds, and a debut album voted one of the "Best of 2006" by Bluegrass Now, Pinecastle recording artists THE DIXIE BEE-LINERS are creating quite a buzz. Known for their high-octane harmonies and stunningly beautiful original songs, the band has appeared live on BBC Radio Scotland, NPR, the Food Network, and radio playlists across the country and world-wide, including regular rotation on Sirius and XM satellite radio. Their self-titled CD debuted on the Roots Music Report bluegrass chart at no. 14, going on to spend 56 weeks on the chart, with 9 of those weeks in the Top 10.

In 2007, the band's music was featured on the soundtrack of the Civil War film Freedom. Ripe was recorded with legendary Grammy-winning producer Bil VornDick (Alison Krauss, Ralph Stanley, Bob Dylan, Jim Lauderdale, James Taylor). The album includes guest appearances from DBL alumnus Andy Falco (Infamous Stringdusters), Mark Fain and Andy Leftwich (Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder), ex-Grascal David Talbot, and dobro player Travis Toy from Rascal Flatts.

The Dixie Bee-Liners have the smooth sensibility of a modern-day band meshed with the high, Smoky-Mountain harmonies and perfect playing that make their style so special.
