In Their Words: “’Keep On Going’ appealed to me and my wife Teresa immediately upon hearing it. Red Allen has always been one of my favorite bluegrass lead singers, and when we heard Scotty Stoneman’s fiddling on the original County Records recording, we were hooked. Scotty was part of the Stoneman Family, who were from our neck of the woods here in Southwest Virginia, and his fiddling along with Porter Church’s banjo playing really filled out the song so well. I asked our guitar player Eddie Gill to listen to the song, and when the band cut it in the studio, I was really pleased!” — Tommy Sells

“The lyrics, and the picking and singing stood out, and it was almost like the song was a blueprint of how good bluegrass music should sound.” — Eddie Gill
