The song Grandview is great.  Is this the old Bobby Clark Song he purchased?  Sounds like it was recorded back in the eighties around the lonesome jubilee era.  I have not heard him sound like that when he sings for many years now.

Yeah I agree, the vocals are great as is the band and the all around sound. It sounds fresh!

 Wow!! I stopped expecting singles like this from John.  Nothing against any of his recent work, but it has been on the somber side. He sounds like he having fun for the first time in a while- best single in 20 years or so.  I do find it weird that he used Mcbride for the female vocal on this, when he his featuring Carlene Carter on the album.
