Come See About Me
A Benefit for the IBMA Trust Fund
The original purpose of the IBMA Trust Fund was to create financial support for musicians who encounter such unplanned events. The goal is to see them through so they can get back to the music they love.
Balsam Range offers “We’re All in This Together.” Here the band trades off lead vocal duties and equally split instrumental breaks to create a feeling of cooperation that is reflected in the lyrics of the songs.
Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver included two songs on the album with “All the Good Things We Could Do” written by multiple IBMA award-winning writer Donna Ulisse and “We’ll Never Walk Alone” from writer Randy Swift. Each one of these sewing seeds of hope for relief of suffering and a look ahead for better and brighter times. “A Little Trust” is another Donna Ulisse song written and performed by Donna with the help of Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver and her own band. Donna sweetly sings this song about how we can all use our own power of love and have a little trust.
The Grascals add some fun to the often serious subject of coming to aid to those in need with an upbeat cover of the classic Beatles song “Help.” Terry Eldridge sings lead and the song has that distinct fun-loving Grascals style.
Chris Jones and the Night Drivers also give an out-of-the-box approach with their song “Glimpse of the Kingdom.” It’s one written by the band and is an interesting spiritual song performed in a minor key that gives it an other-worldly feel.
Darin and Brooke Aldridge’s “Those Tears” starts as a heartbreaking ballad but concludes with a message of faith and a reminder that faith holds hope for healing.
Lonesome River Band joins Brooke Aldridge as she and LRB lead singer Brandon Rickman deliver a powerful duet of the Townes Van Zandt classic “If I Needed You.” This song flows right along with LRB’s Country Bluegrass style.
This project is made possible by The Mountain Home stable of artists, staff, publicists, and songwriters, in cooperation with IBMA and IBMA Trust Fund are all volunteering to put Come See About Me together, giving their time and creativity to support this cause for musician aid.
