In Their Words: "As a life-long lover of the Flatt and Scruggs sound, I am at once flattered and honored to be playing this music with these other men. As our journey lengthens and we release this second project, I feel the Earls bring breath back to this threatened form of bluegrass music with a hard work ethic and many long hours of study. You can’t beat the real thing, but I think we are, at least, in the room with them." — Jerry Douglas
