“Common Man” is available now through digital retailers on Lorraine Jordan & Carolina Road’s latest album, Country Grass. After topping the Billboard country charts in 1983, “Common Man,” originally recorded by Conlee, takes on new life by the bluegrass band. “It was nice to be able to do a bluegrass version of one of my songs, and I really enjoyed working with Lorraine on the project,” Conlee said. “I understand it has gotten a lot of positive feedback since it has been out, and that is really encouraging to me.”
In addition to taking home both “Female Vocalist of the Year” and the prestigious “Song of the Year” at the Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music of America’s (SPBGMA) 2015 awards and convention, Lorraine Jordan & Carolina Road have been riding high off of the momentum created by their latest album Country Grass.

The Music City Ghost [File #81] 2015: There are several young singers right now with the right look, the right song material and the financial backing it will take to become the next generation of Country Music Stars. I have credit cards that are older than some of these young men and women. It is true that they do not have to know who came before them. It is not a requirement to be a Country Music Historian to become a star. In some cases they are taking Pop singers or Rock singers and producing a Country session and the artist has never been exposed to Country Music. The musical genres have crossed over now a days to the point that it is very difficult to determine what genre you are listening to on the radio. Girls coming out on stage with barely any clothes on has been going on in the Rock and Pop field for years but now it is showing up at all your Country Music concerts. Firework displays and smashing guitars has been an expectation of Rock fans for years and if it doesn’t take place at a Country concert these days the fans feel cheated. The youth has taken over the Industry and they are going to do it their way

But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen.
Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. Matthew 6:6
Have you ever tried to have a conversation with a toddler? When you’re in the middle of a sentence, they figure it’s a good time to play with their toys or chase the dog around the house. Sometimes that’s how we treat God. We give Him a few hurried minutes and scattered thoughts, but we don’t set aside a time and place to give Him our full attention and listen to Him. We forget that the place of prayer is also the place of answered prayer! Our problem is ‘the war of wandering thoughts’. Things we’ve forgotten suddenly ‘parade’ across our consciousness, demanding our attention. And as James says, if we’re ‘double-minded’ we don’t get answers to our prayers (James 1:8). What can we do? 1) Pray aloud. This makes it difficult for your mind to wander. You may feel awkward at first, but you’ll soon get comfortable with it. 2) Jot down distracting thoughts.When the ticker tape starts running, write each thing down and forget it until later. And if you still can’t help thinking about it, take it to God in prayer. 3) Keep a diary. Sometimes we don’t really know what we want or how we feel about something until we put it in writing. Then, like a mirror, there it is: your deepest needs and yearnings in front of you—and God. Tell Him your longings and let Him purify them. Tell Him your temptations and let Him strengthen you. Tell Him your resentments and let Him forgive you, and empower you to forgive others. There’s no greater privilege than the privilege of prayer, so don’t neglect it.
forgive me when I pray and then don’t listen.
Help me to listen to Your voice when I pray. In Jesus’ Name, Amen
