CMT's Craig Shelburne recently recognized three new albums for bluegrass fans - and at the top of his list is Aurora Light's Still Moving Mountains: The Journey Home.

Shelburne writes:

While going through a stack of new releases, I grew particularly fond of three bluegrass albums, so I figured I'd share them with you. The first is Still Moving Mountains: The Journey Home, a compilation from Aurora Lights that aims to bring attention to Appalachian mountaintop removal. Songs like Blue Highway's "Clear Cut" illustrate the environmental impact from this controversial mining practice, which razes the top of mountains to get at a layer of coal, but ultimately devastates the area's natural resources. Everett Lilly and the Lilly Mountaineers, Kathy Mattea, the Del McCoury Band and numerous local musicians contribute tracks as well. Robert F. Kennedy Jr. provides a stirring testimonial toward the end.

 

The reviewer also recognized Grasstowne's The Other Side of Towne and Ross Nickerson's Let's Kick Some Ass.
