Doug Paisley: Constant Companion
Rob Hughes, Uncut, December 2010
DOUG PAISLEY is a relative newcomer, but he and his music are both steeped in history. He spent 10 years in a duo that evolved into a homage to bluegrass, called Stanley Brothers: A Loving Tribute. He followed it with two albums of classic country covers, before heading out under his own steam in the most appropriate of settings — support act to Bonnie "Prince" Billy. This is a musician, you instinctively feel, who's in deep.
