Southern Raised Bluegrass Band Performs 'Orange Blossom Special' - Inspirational Videos

Southern Raised Bluegrass is taking us back with this live performance of ‘Orange Blossom Special.’ This favorite was originally released in 1938 and it has been covered by countless artists through the years including Johnny Cash and Charlie Daniels. “Look a-yonder comin' Comin' down that railroad track Hey, look a-yonder comin' Comin' down that railroad track It's the Orange Blossom Special Bringin' my baby back” Siblings Lindsay, Sarah, Emily and Matt make up the Southern Raised Bluegrass band. The group was raised in the Ozark Mountains and they have blended their traditional music upbringing with multiple genres and their deep-rooted faith. For years, they’ve entertained us with popular covers of songs such as ‘What A Day That Will Be’ and ‘Shenandoah.’ The group describes themselves as creating a ‘Southern Raised trademark sound where classical meets bluegrass and city streets meets country roads. SR has morphed a progressive sound that spans Christian Country/ Bluegrass, Celtic and Classical.’ Today, they are performing a live rendition of ‘Orange Blossom Special’ and it’s the perfect dose of nostalgia. “Well, I'm going down to Florida And get some sand in my shoes Or maybe Californy And get some sand in my shoes I'll ride that Orange Blossom Special And lose these New York blues” I never get tired of hearing a bluegrass song and it is such a blessing to hear the next generation continue this unique musical style. This was just the throwback song that my heart needed to hear today. Who else agrees?
