Lonesome River Band is led by 5-Time International Bluegrass Music Association’s Banjo Performer of the Year Sammy Shelor who just received his 2017 IBMA Nomination in the same category.  Since its formation 35 years ago, the band continues its reputation as one of the most respected names in Bluegrass music. Shelor leads the group that is constantly breaking new ground in acoustic music. With two stellar lead vocalists, Brandon Rickman (guitar) and Jesse Smathers (mandolin), with impressive talents of Mike Hartgrove (fiddle) and Barry Reed (bass), the band seamlessly comes together, performing the trademark sound that fans continue to embrace.

Mountain Home Music recently released Lonesome River Band’s new album Mayhayley’s House. The first single release, “Wrong Road Again,” is currently the #1 song on the Bluegrass Today Top 20 Chart. For more information on Lonesome River Band, please visit or join them on and
