Nashville, TN — May 20th marks the release of Nighthawk, the new album from Danny Roberts.
A founding member of the multi-award-winning and three-time Gammy®- nominated group The Grascals, Roberts has won several awards in his own right. He is a four-time winner of the SPBGMA Mandolin Player of the Year Award. Danny is also a regular cast member of ABC’s Nashville, playing a member of the Rayna James band.
He is a true artist who continually strives for excellence and seeks new discoveries. His second solo project, Nighthawk (Mountain Home), spotlights a seasoned and innovative player in his prime.
The recording is an eclectic mix of sophisticated acoustic stylings from Bluegrass to Swing to New Grass and includes some of Danny’s Grascals bandmates as well as “musical idols, friends and family.”
The Nighthawk line-up includes Kristin Scott Benson of the Grascals, Tim Surrett of Balsam Range, Tony Wray of Blue Mafia, and special guests include Ronnie McCoury, Sam Bush, Aubrey Haney, Mike Compton and vocal appearances by Danny’s daughter Jaelee and his wife Andrea.
